I hope everyone has enjoyed the holidays so far! I’m gearing up for a very busy new year, working on new video courses and new patterns that I hope to roll out over the next few weeks.
If you’ve been thinking about purchasing the Basketweave Coffee Cozy video course for yourself (or someone you love), grab it soon because it’s half off until January 4th!
I found a story on a lovely woman who credits her longevity (she was born in 1910!) in part to knitting. She spends her spare time knitting wool hats for a charity that distributes them to needy children in the area.
Another inspiring story: A jailed Egyptian activist is spending her time behind bars knitting handbags with the label “Made in Prison” that she sells for £6 each. Money isn’t the main goal, but rather: “It’s just to deliver a message. Even if you’re jailing us, you can’t stop us. Our souls are free. Whatever happens, prison won’t stop our imagination.”
Wishing everyone lots of love, hope, and happiness in the new year!
