Men’s Fiber Community Donations!
The generosity of the men’s fiber community is never short of extraordinary! This past week I received two men’s fiber community donations and they are so awesome!
Two Men’s Fiber Community Donations
MJ Yarns and The Perfect Purl are both men-owned businesses. And both have been incredibly supportive the Men’s Knitting Retreats and our associated community. For the last few retreats, we’ve had a raffle that supports the scholarship fund for the Men’s Spring and NorthEast/Fall retreats.
For September, we’ll have three raffle baskets that the guys can win:
- Crochet raffle basket
- Knitting raffle basket
- Spinning/Fiber Prep raffle basket
Crochet Raffle Basket
Jonathan at MJ Yarns has some of the most beautifully hand-dyed yarns. He also sells hand-turned sets of interchangeable crochet hooks that are so fantastic. Just when I didn’t think there was anything I could possibly add to my stash, I know have total envy for the interchangeable hook set. I may need to order a set for myself. We’ve also added a book for crocheting gnomes and a rechargeable neck light for the basket.
Knitter’s Raffle Basket
Please patronize these two amazing fiber-companies and help us thank them for their generosity.
Fiber-Preparation/Spinning Raffle Basket
Donations for this raffle basket are equally as generous. I’ll post about the donors and vendors later. Here are some of the items I have photos of.
Any raffle basket winners in September will be quite pleased with what they win.
It may not look like it, but I’ve made a bit more progress on the crochet, cotton, short-sleeve shirt.
Since Monday, I have only been able to add an inch to the body.
It will move along a bit more quickly as soon as I start shaping for the sleeve holes. And I can’t imagine the sleeves will take very long.
