Yesterday we told you about the event being organised in Norway by Margaret and the Oppdal Arthritis Society, but there’s more going on this month around the world too. #grateful #charitableknitting #knittersofinstagram
For several months now, Erin and her flock at Morehouse farm have been supporting us in a variety of ways. They’ve hosted 2 knit alongs which saw participants from around the world hone their colourwork skills using our patterns, donated one dollar for every skein of their Merino yarn sold during June last year, ultimately started stocking hard copies of our patterns. The latter was made even more viable when Anne Frost came to Shetland Wool Week last year and returned to the US with our Stockists Bundles in her luggage. (Anne is currently co hosting the Maakin for the MRI knit along with Jana)
Morehouse Merino Farm has a booth at Vogue Knitting Live in New York on the 17th-19th of this month and they’ve sold so well they’d run out of several of them. Since between Erin and Anne, they’ve put a lot into pushing the Harriet Collection at the event, that was a bit of a problem. So last week we shipped over more bundles of what they need to highlight the full set.
If you’re heading to the event, or are in New York and fancy adding it to your weekend plans, look out for the poster above. Make your way to Booth 102, 5th floor
of the NY Marriot Marquis in Times Square. You’ll find all of our patterns there, along with their finished knitted examples in fine quality Merino yarn. They’ll have the full collection of patterns, and a collection bucket for the Scanner Appeal throughout. Anne will be joining them between 1pm and 2 pm on Saturday the 18th. They’re also lovely people, incredibly supportive, and you should stop by and say hello anyway.
From Norway to New York, and everywhere in between, in both directions, we can’t thank everyone enough for their support. Last year was truly incredible and this year is starting off pretty well too.
