I’m a big fan of director, Wes Anderson. The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore, Fantastic Mr. Fox are all quirky and wonderful flicks with places on my all-time faves list. Now, joining those is his latest work of art and this week’s Movie Monday feature, Moonrise Kingdom. Here’s a screen-shot-peek of just one of the reasons you should check out the film: two of the characters don a few great, knitted pieces!
Today (3/31) is Trans Visibility Day, which also, coincidentally marks three weeks since I began volunteering as a Crisis Counselor for @trevorproject, an organization with the mission to end suicide amongst LGBTQ+ youth.
At this point, I only have a thimble's worth of experience, but from human to human, I thought I'd share just one of the things I've learned so far about what it means to identify as trans.
To the trans folks in my life, today and every day, sending love and acceptance your way.
To everyone, kind to one another. Respect each other's individual journies....
I’ve legit been waiting for @ikeausa to have this glass case in-stock since mid pandemic. I wanted a happy little place for projects of YarnYAY! Past to live. I love a knitwear stack. 😍 It’s the little things, people!
(Oh, and patterns for every thing in this curio are available in my shop at YarnYAY.com ✔️)...
Today's the day we kick off the Crochet-along for the @pompommag Overprint Bag, in partnership with designer @juliamadill
We've put together Montoya Merino Light kits in my YarnYAY! shop, but no matter which yarn you use (the called-for yarn is rad, but a little harder to get here in the states -- see Julia's great post about yarn substitutions), we'd love for you to make yours along with us!
Psst...YarnYAYers get a special 20% off the digital issue pf Pom Pom. See our kit page (tap or go to yarnyay.com) for details!
Join the YarnYAY! Facebook Group and/OR Ravelry Group to follow along. Hope to see you there!
