Have yet to read the article, but I must say this based on your message: Ravelry has about 8 million members. Millions are not being banned. Only thing banned is outright support for an administration that supports white supremacy. If a user refrains from exhibiting support for hate, she is not banned. In all, very few will be banned...certainly not millions or even thousands... I would be surprised if it rises to hundreds.

In ode to the adorableness of a newborn baby’s plump, little feet, we used our softest, finest Line Weight merino to knit these teeny Knit Layette Socks. Adorned with tiny cables, they are the perfect gift for all those expecting a newcomer this summer!

A Bouquet Of Color

Although small, these Knit Layette Socks are filled with pretty details, and in Line Weight’s bountiful choice of colors, they also pack a punch. This project is so mini, you can pick a handful of colors like you’re picking flowers!

Knit A Whole Layette!

Our Knit Layette Socks are just one of three patterns included in our Knit Layette Pattern. You’ll also find a matching cardigan and hat, both employing the same timeless cables as the booties and all in baby-soft Line Weight... Beautiful!

Re: June 15 , 2019 Spin Class

The Armonk Knitting Circle group welcomes all knitters/crocheted, no matter what their skill level.  We have helped many "new" knitters. Yes, gals are working on their own projects, but happily put their project down to help another knitter with anything they need. 
Our group is friendly and supportive. 
We would welcome you, Wilma, if you choose to stop by some time.   Joan

Hi Wilma,

We welcome people of all experience levels, and as others have said, we’re glad to offer guidance and advice. I simply wanted to make sure that it was clear this wasn’t a class setting. If someone came to a meeting expecting a class with a planned project and an instructor with a lesson plan, they would be disappointed.

Wilma,

We have had beginners come and get better. As Teresa pointed out she has taught a couple of people how to spin on a drop spindle and I have helped people with knitting. Yes we are experienced but some of us do enjoy helping others learn. If you want to reconnect with knitting, please come. If it is a meeting I am coming to, I would be happy to reacquaint you with knitting.

I will let Lucinda know that I will not be joining.

Dear Joe and Lucinda

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend today's class. I am a BC patient. Just got through doing radiation and I am extremely tired today.

Also, I asked about materials I would need to bring with me to do the class, but did not get a response on that.

If , I need to bring materials, I need to know what I need so I come prepared.

My interest in learning how to spin and reconnect with knitting, is for one to get off the treadmill of doctor appointments, treatments and having 
cancer 24/7 on mind. “I want to do something funâ€� and relaxing for me as part of my healing regiment. Two, I like to create projects that I can bring 
back to the Cancer Treatment Center where I am being treated as gifts for other patients going through and even encourage others to join 
something fun and healing.

First Sunday, will not be good for me to attend, as I reconnecting to going back to church. Saturdays will be good.

I pray to join the next Saturday Class.

Thank You . Have a great weekend.

Wilma

Elizabeth Napp, didn't  you come as a beginning knitter?  And last time you were here, you were far beyond a beginner.

Wilma, you'll be very welcome.  And if you want a distraction - we're a great group of friendly ladies who love to talk (as you may have gathered from reports of past meetings).

I hope you'll come to our next meeting and see what you think.

Yes, I Agee. My kids are not impressed by any of those things. My son and his fiancé relocated to a town outside of Houston. They bought a very average home and really don’t want any kind of traditional wedding not even a small one. 
Well, one way to look at is maybe they will put all that money they won’t be spending into a safe retirement fund since there will almost certainly be no social security.

But that's far in the future.  Though today we did discuss that, just as you should arrange for someone to take care of your parrot or tortoise after your death, maybe we should also arrange for someone to take care of our UFOs.

But I'm not planning to die, either <grin>.

Pat had her two-strand knitted throw with cables.

Susan is taking a break from the never-ending sweater: a cap of light grey wool from their sheep.

Lucinda continued to knit on her Bohus sweater which required concentration.

Note that all four of us were knitting and on circular needles - I don't think we've ever had that high a proportion of knitters.

Helen was there as well, now as a friend rather than a "monitor" and she was working on the still-more-never-ending-than-Susan's-sweater needlepoint Christmas stocking.

Conversation, of course, ranged widely: will anyone want to inherit our furniture/linens/never-ending-projects?  knitting; medicine; children and husbands, to mention only a few.

Dear Joe and Lucinda

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend today's class. I am a BC patient. Just got through doing radiation and I am extremely tired today.

Also, I asked about materials I would need to bring with me to do the class, but did not get a response on that.

If , I need to bring materials, I need to know what I need so I come prepared.

My interest in learning how to spin and reconnect with knitting, is for one to get off the treadmill of doctor appointments, treatments and having

The Armonk Knitting Circle meets in the Armonk Library on Monday and Thursday from 10:00 am to 12:30 PM.  I am a member of that group. The gals are great! Everyone is happy to help.
I would suggest #6 needles--straight or circular. We have yarn. We are presently Knitting 12 inch squares to make blankets for the homeless. That's a good way to start knitting.
Suzanne Percello is our "leader."  She works in the library.
