About the Author:

Author Toni Carr, known as Joan of Dark # 5 when she’s skating with the Naptown Roller Girls, is a passionate knitter and crocheter. Carr has skated with the Naptown Roller Girls since the beginning of the league. In one year, this team has progressed from novice skaters practicing in a church parking lot to a team of close friends that competes in front of more than 2,000 fans at every home bout. She got the chance to show off her crochet skills last year on the DIY show ‘Uncommon Threads,’ and she and her team have appeared on ‘Knitty Gritty,’ also on the DIY network.
