9/6/23 – After the Whirlwind – FOs and FFOs!

Hi friends! What can I say? August was a WHIRLWIND! As a result, I’ve got a LOT to share with you today, craft-wise, shop-wise, and I’ve also got August SSOY MAL prize winners to announce.

Show notes below have time stamps and links to my project pages both on my project blog, My Favorite Day (MFD), as well as on Ravelry (Rav). If you have questions about anything in the video, feel free to leave a comment or email me, and I’ll be happy to try and answer!

Intro & Announcements

My ♥STAY♥ colorway for National Suicide Prevention Month is in the shop now and can be pre-ordered through September. $5.00 from each ♥STAY♥ item will be divided between two organizations working to prevent suicide – K9s for Warriors, who work with the veteran population; and The Trevor Project, who work with LGBTQIA+ youth.

Fibernymph Dye Works is a Pro Shop Sponsor again this year for the Down Cellar Studio Pigskin Party! Kick Off Weekend is coming up on 9/8-9, and I’ll be hosting a kick off Zoom on Sat., 9/9, at 2 p.m. eastern. I hope you’ll join me! You’ll find all of the Kick Off schedule and links here.
