Longest Day Make-a-thon

Perfect Blend Facebook Cover.jpg

Once again, we’re delighted to get behind the cause of our friend, knitter and podcaster extraordinaire Amanda Hinksi aka @oldsaltcraftco.

In memory of her father, and as an advocate for Alzheimer’s awareness, Amanda is hosting a virtual sunrise to sunset Make–a-thon, when she will knit a sweater from start to finish! Click thru here to learn more about Amanda’s #endalz team.

In support of Amanda (and all those who have been impacted by Alzheimers or dementia) we will be knitting/crocheting all day too- sunrise to sunset!

Yes! We will be casting on at sunrise- 5:30am- and hosting relay knitting/crocheting til sunset -8:35pm. We will be making scarves- all are encouraged to add a few inches! Come for a few minutes, a couple of hours, come once , visit two or three times, help us add those inches!

PBYS will donate $5 to Amanda's fundraiser for every foot of fabric created- in both a knitted and crocheted version! And of course, we’ll be serving tea all day (perhaps even some coffee for the sunrise crew ;), light refreshments, and KAL fun!

Come any time (5:#0- 8:35!), sit for a spell and help us support Amanda on this longest day!
