This morning, Anne Stevens Frost woke to some great news.
Anne has been an active supporter of our efforts to raise funds for the Shetland MRI Scanner appeal, and has mentioned it in her regular “I Thought I Knew How” podcasts twice now. She has highlighted the worldwide Harriet’s Hat knit along organised by the Minnesota Knitters guild in them, whilst taking part herself.
When she finished her hat a few days ago, Anne submitted it for the Lets Knit Magazine’s weekly “Reader Makes” competition. Pictured here is the Instagram post announcing that they’d picked her entry as the winner.
They also took the opportunity to highlight what we’re doing, which is fantastic. We don’t think they realise how appropriate their choice of winner really is. Unknown to them, not only has Anne joined in the world wide knit along, and spread word of what we’re doing using her podcasts along with various social media accounts, but she’s also sponsored the printing of hard copies of the Harriet’s Headband patterns. The pattern is with a test knitter at the moment, and will be released as soon as that process has been completed.
If you haven’t started your Harriet’s Hat yet, it’s not to late to enter into the Harriet’s Hat knit along finished hat prize draw. Simply download your Harriet’s Hat pattern here, and post a picture of it completed on the Minnesota Knitters thread on Ravelry before the 20th July.
