emPower People Bandana
emPower people is a purple colored craftivism project aimed at uniting crafters to spark conversation, engagement, and action. Wear it when you vote, grocery shop, march, or stitch in your socially isolated bedroom. From one of the organizers: "We would love to see a sea of purple to represent unity so please tell your friends, family, knitting groups, or anyone who can knit, crochet, or sew a simple pattern. Make a bandana and a commitment to vote!"
Dragon's Lore Scarf Kit
Rik designed this amazing double-knit scarf to knit while fighting dragons during his weekly gaming night. The secret magic feature of this scarf is having completely different designs on each side, and yet it's even easier than regular double-knitting! Check out more Purl's kit offerings here.
Special Drop Ship Kits
Yarn companies are working to give a boost to LYSes (Local Yarn stores) by offering drop ship kits. Check out these offerings from Rowan and Knitting Fever (including Noro kits). Find out more here.
