Dark Secret

I forgot to write a post about this shawl when I first released it (I’ve been really bad about blogging)…so here’s a post now…much later.

Dark Secret is a stole worked from end-to-end using just two skeins of Stitch Sprouts Yellowstone. The open airy-ness is achieved with dropped stitches. It’s kind of magic. As you knit the piece is rather narrow, almost scarf-like, but at the end when you drop the stitches, it opens up and becomes a nice wide stole.

I’m donating 50% of all sales of Dark Secret to The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. And thanks to your purchases made my first donation.

Today, for Giving Tuesday, I’m so happy to be donating $105. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This means so much to me and so much to so many.

Suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems. It’s something that many people grapple with every day and yet as a society we try to ignore it and are often ashamed to talk about it. I’m open to saying, let’s talk. The more open we are to talking, the more lives we can save.

If you ever feel like you need someone to talk to, this lifeline is available to you and I’m here for you too. Send me a message, an email, or a text. But most importantly, know that you matter and that you are not alone.

Like many others today, I’m also doing a fund raiser on Facebook. My cause is Suicide Prevention, of course. Feel free to pop on over if you like.
