Knitting For Good
Spearheaded by designer Melanie Berg and yarn company Rosy Green Wool, Knitters Against Malaria is a collective effort of fiber industry players and stitchers working to raise money for Against Malaria Foundation (AMF). From December 24th through January 31st, fiber enthusiasts are encouraged to donate money to the cause. All money raised will fund life-saving mosquito nets that will be distributed to those in need through the AMF. Join Andrea Mowry, Andrea Rangel, Tin Can Knits, Grocery Girls and more as the pot grows from its current €11,000 mark.

Destress from the holidays and reset with a #PaletteCleanserKAL hosted by designer Susanne Sommer aka Sosuknits. The KAL, which kicks off tomorrow, December 28, 2019, features the designer’s Palette Cleanser Sweater, an oversized cropped sweater knit with 3 colors of worsted weight yarn. The intention of the sweater and the KAL is to clear your mind so that you can kick off 2019 full of unabridged creativity. There is no end date to the KAL, but we have a feeling that it won’t last long since this sweater is a quick knit.
