Welcome Lori! I noticed in your intro you send knitted toys to a
Pine Ridge charity organization? Do you live in South Dakota? Pine
Ridge is about 40 minutes from where I live! :) It's wonderful that
you help out in other charities.
Hope to see some of your work in our "Photos" section of the group.
Make sure to upload often :)

> I've just joined the group so here's my intro. I'm 29 and live in
