I decided to start knitting last week. I have no idea why. I make quick decisions. And I like acting on whims. Starting to knit again sounded like a good idea on January 1st. I learned when I was a youngin, from my brilliantly domestic grandma. I used to knit scarves, blankets, anything to keep me entertained in the evenings while I hung out with her–or sat in the back seat on family road trips. After buying a circle scarf years ago from H&M I’ve been obsessed with the style ever since. It’s the perfect Fall/Winter/Spring addition to sweaters, t-shirts and dresses.
A circle scarf became my first project. I started and finished a cream coloured one on New Years Day. And on January 2nd, I made a red one. Over the next few days, I made three more in different colours as gifts. After putting two photos up on Instagram I was surprised at all of the likes and comments. It was the cutest. So, that led me to this question… how can I make knitting more exciting? (Because it’s really quite repetitive and I am easily bored.)
THIS IS HOW!
Help me combine knitting and giving.
My business is a partner of Mercy Ministries Canada. (If you haven’t seen my post about their Surrey home, please read more about the ministry here.) I would love to knit whatever colour circle scarf you desire in exchange for a $80 donation to Mercy. Materials will be donated by me so 100% of your purchase can go to the ministry.
I love finding ways to encourage giving, and this handmade scarf is just me saying “THANKS!” for your $80 donation. (Because really, if you needed a scarf, you could go to H&M and get one for $8. This is not about my scarves.) So… if you’re interested in ordering, send an email to email@example.com for more information.
THANKS GUYS. You’re cool, blog readers.
