Happy Juneteenth!

Paraphrased from the Smithsonian's National Institute of African American History:

"Juneteenth marks our country’s second independence day, when African Americans were inspired and empowered to transform their lives and their country. The historical legacy of this monumental event shows the value of never giving up hope in uncertain times."

We celebrate the freedom represented by this joyful day. We hope that every new project you begin gives you hope and reminds you of the resiliency of the human spirit.

Shop NewsA young black woman with loc'd hair looks directly at the camera with a neutral expression. She's wearing a cream-colored wrap with a point at one end and a v-shape on the other. The shawl's shape is highlighted with texture stitches.

Featured Yarn & Pattern
Today's featured pattern is a gorgeous knitted wrap shaped like a large arrow, appropriately named the Moving Forward Wrap by Denise Bayron ($10 in-store or on Ravelry). It has areas of lacy texture that highlight the directional knitting. To show off the stitches best, use a solid colored yarn like Vintage Sock. Rather do something colorful? Try an ombre yarn like Whirl to emphase the directional nature of the Moving Forward Wrap!
The designer also has a YouTube video where she discusses this pattern and its inspiration.

The Tip Jar

Knitters Do you have a hard time seeing whether or not your stitches are sitting on the needle correctly? The easiest way to see their slant is to stretch the stitches apart and then look at them directly from the top. This enables you to see the slant, without the other stitches confusing things.
Here's a blog post with a good description of Western Style stitch mount.
