This wonderful lady has volunteered to moderate our Ravelry group Knit Along and is doing a superlative job at it! We wanted to introduce her to you all here but if you hop over to the discussion in the Peace Fleece Lovers group you can chat with her, and lots of other awesome people, directly!

Here's a picture of her in the first sweater she ever knit... do you recognize the yarn? Looks like Baghdad Blue and Chickie Masla to us.

Margot,  a reformed computer programmer with a BS in Computer Science, traded bits for knits by becoming a Knitting Pattern Technical Editor. She knit her first sweater with Peace Fleece yarn nearly 10 years ago and has been a self-appointed Peace Fleece Evangelist ever since.

As a founder of the non-profit organization Local Motion, Margot advocates for safe non-motorized transportation opportunities for a clean and healthy community. When not poring over patterns or knitting, Margot bicycles, kayaks, and leads a dance team steeped in the English tradition of Rapper.

Margot lives on a vegetable farm in Vermont with the farmer, two cats, and a yarn-stealing English Shepherd.

Margot (Mango!) thanks so much for picking up the ball and hosting the Ravelry portion of the Old Friend KAL. I can't wait to get my yarn -- I'm making a black Old Friend for My Little Sailor, and a blue DK weight for myself!

Hi Aunt Marti, so glad that you are joining us in the KAL! And you're making two, WOW!

See you at Ravelry!
