A MESSAGE FROM THE INTERKNIT PRESIDENT

 

Dear IMK Members,

As we Shelter-in Place, we are all in this together. It's time to take the covers off your knitting machine and knit. Turn the news off; it's depressing. Turn on YouTube, learn a new technique, try something that you've never done before. While you are staying in, work on the Education Series, it's not too late to start. Work on busting your stash, all that yarn that you've been hiding. There's a brighter day ahead. We can all get through this together. Let's practice our best smile while we knit. I know that some of us have been making masks for different hospitals, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. I made 24 so far. Remember that today is a good day, and you are loved by many, Trust in God. Remember don't go out without a mask on!

Happy knitting,

Valoria
