This week was a little short on the chatter just because I wanted to get through the mountain of yarn next to me, lol.
What I'm Wearing
What I'm Wearing: Brain Space shawl by Shaina Scott (me!) made using fingering-weight yarns from Alive with Purpose Yarns in the Marietta & Champs-Élysées colorways. You can still get a kit & support mental health services in MN.
Thank you so much to everyone who purchased a copy of the Brain Space shawl in the month of October 2020, we were able to donate $111.31 to support mental health services in MN!
My test knitter, Maralulu, is selling her gorgeous Brain Space shawl as a fundraiser for the Northumberland Community Counselling Centre in Cobourg, Ontario. This is a beautiful hand-knit shawl that would make a wonderful gift while supporting a great cause. (Sorry! I misspoke in the episode, 20% of the proceeds are being donated.)
Tutorials can all be found on the Learn page.
