I am new to your podcast and really enjoying. Today, I was quilting while listening to your latest podcast so your comment in the last podcast about guiltily enjoying quilting hit home... I do enjoy knitting but would not give up my quilting.

Your giveaways sound wonderful...I can't imagine pearl yarn. I have heard a lot about Yolsalda but haven't knit one of her patterns yet.

9peasMom said...

Quilting is my first love, but knitting is a close second - I suspect if my skills would improve on knitting I would love it even more. The Pearl is beautiful, I would love to win it!

KatieB said...

I am lucky to have been able to retire earlier this year. Though I may not be able to stay retired forever, this has been a time of great abundance and happiness. More time for family, personal interests and reflection.

Even with a large family of kids and grandkiddies, it soon became apparent I would have tons more knitting time. I spent a few months consulting with some very wise people and doing a lot of research to find a local organization which helps women who have experienced violent and tragic events.

For several months now, I have been stash diving and using my most luxurious fibers to knit shawls to support this organization, and they in turn distribute these shawls at their discretion. Since the group is secular, we aren't calling them prayer shawls but compassion shawls.

You may be aware that my town, Prescott Arizona, recently experienced the very tragic loss of nine wild land firefighters.

This type of knitting has been very healing to me personally during this time of community grief, and I am so glad I had already embarked on this project prior to the tragedy as I am sure, like everyone else in our small town, I wouldn't have been able to see straight to put one foot in front of another.

Our local area (and the nation and the world, it seems), have gathered around to support the fallen firefighters families financially and emotionally (even in knitting some items for those who were expecting newborns in coming months) so it's been a glorious time in that sense with everyone bending over backward to assist however and whenever they can.

As part of the ongoing need to honor those who have experienced such profound losses, I am more committed than ever to continuing my knitting of compassion shawls. I promise that if I win this particular drawing, the shawl I make will go to that project and find a home on the shoulders of someone who really needs it.

Thanks, as always, for the opportunity.

I LOVE Ysolda! I had the pleasure of finally getting to meet her at TNNA- my husband got to meet her a few years ago when he went to get a book signed for me at the LYS where she was signing/talking. I was stuck at home on bed rest, and he felt sorry for me, so he went (and came home with not only my signed book but also my Addi needles and yarn!). Bedrest was worth it after all that!
