#HopeKnitLove the Movement!

The time is now! 

Our world needs Hope... We love to Knit... Let's show some Love!!!
I have high hopes that something BIG comes of us! We ALL need to be the difference that we want to see in this world. Turn on the news on any given day, and we're flooded with devastation, catastrophes, heartache, despair, hate crimes, and the list goes on... Enough is enough... Can a few of us knitters really make a difference? I believe that if we touch just one life, and make a positive impact, we are achieving our goal! 
So, we'll start small... but dream BIG! 
Stay tuned... I have a couple of people in mind for starters that I want us to reach out and touch. 
More details coming this week... We CAN do this!!! I love you ALL!

Stitch Red

This blog has been pretty dormant since I started it, but I finally have some more charities to share with you! I do all of my day to day blogging on my BayAreaKnitter blog. So if you are interested in learning more about who I am and what I'm up to, visit me over there.
Today I would like to share with you the Stitch Red cause.

Doug and Laura Zander founded Stitch Red as a national heart disease awareness campaign. It is supported by the Needlearts industry. This campaign is a driving effort to draw attention to heart disease, the #1 killer of women in the United States, help people understand their risk factors for the disease and encourage the adoption of healthier lifestyles to protect their heart health. Did you know that heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined (including breast cancer!)?
I'm proud to announce that I have decided to get involved in this movement by creating a hat pattern specifically designed for this campaign. I'm in the final stages of having the contract signed and releasing my design as an official Stitch Red product. I will be donating a percentage of the gross profits from each sale to this wonderful cause.
Please stay tuned as I will be posting photos of the hat and links to where you can purchase your own copy of the pattern. Let's "stick it to heart disease" together!

Knit Pray Love

As I was sitting in my car this afternoon, I was listening to positive, encouraging K-LOVE, and I heard them mention Knit Pray Love. Of course my attention was peaked when I heard them mention knitting. So I listened intently. I didn't need to give it much thought... I knew this would make the perfect "first post" to this blog.
They’re looking for hand-knit items only (knitting looms are fine too) Please don't buy hats. Garments that have had your personal time, attention, and prayer is what they are in need of. (hand-knit baby blankets will be accepted as well, but they prefer hats)
Please take a moment to watch this video. The deadline is very near... So sorry for the late notice, but I know there are those out there that can turn a hat out within a day or two. If interested please visit their site for all the details.

  • Please ship your knit items post-marked by February 15, 2012
