No knitting content right now. Here are some things I’ve done, and some resources you can check out if you want to do something but don’t know what.
- Changed my view on Instagram: Literally. I spent some time this morning digging through Instagram, finding new accounts to follow. Yesterday my feed was filled with black squares, and while I appreciate the intent, I want to see the posts from those BIPOC, and I wasn’t following enough to offset the black squares. Want some ideas? Check out who I follow, then see who they follow. Follow, like, share, repeat. My Insta right now is sharing those voices, not mine.
- Donated to Dye Hard Yarns’ Go Fund Me to help her get a Community Dye Studio up and running. Remember my Bonny Lass yarn? This is her.
- Preordered a “Raise Some Heck” t-shirt (plus an awesome pin) from Tyler Thrasher. Proceeds will help support bailing out protestors and providing science experiment kits for black families to do at home in Tulsa. ETA: this preorder is no longer available.
Want more? Check out some really cool beaded and leather jewelry from Antoinette’s Originals on Etsy, made by Antoinette Houston, who also writes and self-publishes science fiction. You can see more about her on her website.
Here are a few other ideas:
This is just a start. My money isn’t bottomless but I can keep listening, keep sharing, keep reading, keep learning, keep loving. Wishing you love and peace, friends.
