Gratitude

Take a deep breath. 

Really. Come on, I'll do it with you.

Breathe in for four.

Now, breath out for four

Maybe repeat a few more times.

We are going into this month with so many unknowns and it's exhausting. Sometimes even knitting doesn't seem to help.

Of course we have the elections on Tuesday. That requires a deep breath.

But we also have so many other unknowns and decisions to make that seem to not have any right answers. Do we go to that happy hour, do we hug a friend, do we let our kids have that playdate, do we invite our grandma over for Thanksgiving? UGH! Every decision seems to bring anxiety. 

It's hard to even imagine that we are here. November. The holidays are upon us and even though we are anxious, frustrated, and unsure, we can control one thing - we can choose to be grateful.

We'll be asking you this month to think about gratitude, to acknowledge things you are grateful for, and to show gratitude to others. Stay tuned and keep breathing!

Thank You Cards

With every purchase this month, we are sending along a thank you card. A blank thank you card for you to give to someone else. We are asking you to show someone gratitude in this tangible way.

Choose a teacher, a nurse, a friend, a neighbor, a sister. Maybe someone who works the checkout line at Target or your local grocery store. Someone who did something nice for you or for someone you love. 

With any purchase at the shop, or online, we'll include one of our thank you cards and an envelope. We hope it makes you feel good, to make someone else feel good!
 

Makers' League November 

What else are we doing this month to show kindness and grace, to remember all we are grateful for? 

Well, our Makers' League for November is part of the plan. 

Lavender Lune has dyed a yarn for us, our Darn Knit 2020 exclusive colorway. Samantha shared this photo of our beautiful yarn in the dye pot!

It's a fingering weight, superwash merino and nylon. It's $34 and perfect for a pair of socks.

Guess what else?!?

With every skein we sell, we will be donating a pair of socks to shelters in our communities. Did you know that socks are the most requested items for people struggling with homelessness? It's a simple thing we can do that can make a direct impact.

We have 200 skeins, so we hope to make a big sock donation.

All you have to do is buy the skein of yarn and we'll do the rest.

Don't love to make socks? Me neither. I made a beautiful shawl out of my skein instead.

One more thing. It's not for sale just yet!

Tomorrow morning at 8am we'll be sending another email with our inspiration, some more pictures, and the active shopping link to the yarn. So watch for our email tomorrow morning! 

Want to do more?

If you want to make additional sock donations, we would be happy to add them to our pile of socks:)

Feel free to drop them off anytime this month. 

Socks should be unworn, but they don't have to be in the original packaging. 

White crew socks are the most requested items for both men and women. 

Thank you for helping us remember one important thing we are grateful for, clean warm socks!

Late Hours Tuesdays

We are slowly getting back to our 'normal' hours. 

The shop will be open Tuesday nights until 7pm!

Watch for more evening hours as fall begins.

Open Knit Election Night

We are going to do Open Knitting on zoom next Tuesday, Election Night from 6-7.

Only 1 hour, then we're heading home to watch the events play out with the rest of the world.

We hope to see you then!.
All are welcome.
