Today I’m chatting with Kristina Vilimaite about her generous project raising money for Sight is Life through her ebook of 7 gorgeous accessory patterns and a MKAL to come in January.

Knitvent Update:

It’s the sixth and last week of Knitvent already, and behind window #6 was the Fresh Tracks Headband.

Events:

Knitaid

This is a great time of year to help out Knitaid who are accepting knitted donations until the 20th of December to send to the refugee camps. They focus on hats, cowls, and other warm things, knit with love and quality yarn for people who have lost everything, and they’ve just asked for covered hot water bottles this time, so I’m donating free versions of my Warm Wishes Hottie Pattern to anyone who wants to knit one for Knitaid. Use the code KNITAID when you check out on Ravelry!

  1. I too am an environmentalist and have a career in it. I too get burnt out with the huge eco problems, so I try to just do my part in my personal and my work life. I use reusable water bottles and hot tea travel mugs, and reusable shopping bags. I try to buy sustainable clothing when possible, shop local, and try to just use my money when possible to those who are also trying to protect our footprint on this planet. I know that my knitting helps sooth me and my stress and I am grateful for your podcast to regenerate my energy in knitting so that maybe I will knit more than just 2 hours with my friends each week and actually do some knitting at home 🙂

    • Thanks so much for your reminder to focus on doing what we can to improve our impact on the environment and for listening to the show x
