If you haven't heard, the Breathe and Hope Shawl by Casapinka took the yarn world by storm a few weeks ago. The release of this pattern helped out many Local Yarn Stores around the country during this pandemic. It also gave us knitters a sense of community that seemed a bit lost as local yarn stores had to close their doors to customers for a while. Basically Casapinka is a wonderful human. She let local yarn stores create kits for her new pattern and also released free pattern coupon codes for anyone that bought a kit on what should have been Local Yarn Store Day. I firmly believe this pattern helped boost morale within the yarnie world.
Many of you bought kits from Love & Stitches and we thank you so much! Even though the pattern is no longer free on Ravelry and the kits are down from the website, it is not too late to join in all the Breathe and Hope festivities. We are continuing the love of this pattern and celebration of local yarn stores by having a virtual knitalong from May 2nd to June 13th. You could even win a copy of Vogue Knitting - The Ultimate Quick Reference if you participate!
