On the longest day of the year, our dear friend Ann Budd, knits to raise awareness (and hopefully a whole lot of funds) for the Alzheimer’s Association. Each year the Alzheimer’s Association challenges individuals to help fight the disease by raising funds and awareness for care, support, and research on the day with the most light. This year is no exception!
On Sunday, June 18th, Ann will knit from sunrise (somewhere around 5:00 am) to sunset (somewhere around 9:00 pm) Mountain Daylight Time on a project she designed specifically for this event. We’re joining Ann, along with four other fabulous yarn shops, to turn this day into a fun knit-a-long (KAL). We want you to come along too.
What we’ll be working on for the KAL:
Ann designed the cowl pattern called Fading Memories Cowl. When you purchase this pattern, Ann will donate $5 USD to Alzheimer’s research.
“The stitch pattern consists of expanding cables separated by eyelet lace that represents convoluted memories and lost awareness. The dark-to-light gradient represents how those afflicted with Alzheimer’s become ghosts of their former selves.”
We will be donating $1.00 for everyone who joins our Zoom on Sunday, June 18th from 9:00am-10:00am EDT
We will also be donating $5.00 from the sale of each of our Fading Memories Cowl Combos.
Zoom link will be emailed to you in the form of a PDF attachment once your register.
