Knit For Food Knitathon THIS WEEKEND
Update as of posting this episode - over $181,000! Please donate! Help put us over $200K
Be A Helper Craftalong - Just over a month to go!
6th Be A Helper Craft-a-long has begun! We keep the rules simple.
- Anything you make for any charity counts, doesn’t have to be knit/crochet/woven or spun. ANYthing you make for ANY charity.
- One FO per submission
- Donating blood counts too!
- Contest ends when I wake up March 15 and close the form/thread.
- Wips are always welcome
- Partial FOs count, for example if you make a blanket strip and your local yarn shop sews them together to make full blankets, count your blanket strip.
One change this year – due to ongoing accessibility issues on Ravelery, I’ll hold this event both on and off Ravelry. Last year we just used a Google Form and that was hard for some folks, so this year there will be a chat thread and an FO thread on Rav, and for non-Rav users I’ll have a google form where you can link to your IG/FB/Twitter post showing your FO.

A set of mini skeins from Unwind Yarn Company – especially exciting as Dana does not dye anymore.
Jen Lassonde of Downcellar Studio has very generously offered one of her patterns and a skein of yarn, thank you Jen!
One skein of yarn - currently a mystery thanks to shipping delays.
A sample I can’t talk about, I finished it December 30th and very proud of it

Knights Who Say Knit by Mary Annarella of Lyrical Knits, a really fun Monty Python and the Holy Grail inspired pattern.
