I should have written this blog post on Friday...but with events in the news, doomscrolling, being angry and frustrated, I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Who wants to hear about a new pattern release when the news looks the way it does?
Maybe you? Maybe you need a distraction from current events?
This 7/8ths of a circle shawl was my answer to TDQ's keep planting sunflowers in the hopes of having them bloom, only to have the wild rabbits that frequent our garden eat them! (Not that I blame the rabbits, I find sunflower micro-greens to be very tasty, too!)
Started in June of 2021, the pattern is now available on Knotions, and Ravelry.
Worked in a lace weight yarn, in two colors, with two colors of beads, this shawl is definitely not going to be eaten by pesky rabbits!
But back to current events.
From now, until I decide to change it, all proceeds (probably rounded up to the nearest round number) from my Dissent Pattern will be donated to Planned Parenthood and Plan C.
While I would love for you to buy the pattern, I would be equally happy if you just made a donation to either of those worthy, and needed, causes. In case you would like to make a donation in the name of someone else, may I suggest a Supreme Court Justice of your choice, with any Thankyou Cards being mailed to:
1 First Street, NE
Washington, DC 20543
Until next time...try to find hope, register to vote if you are eligible and not registered, then get out to vote when election day roles around.
