Etsy Shop Update: Seasons DK

Today’s Teton Knitting Company Etsy Shop update features our Seasons DK, a beautiful, bouncy, squishy yarn in beautiful tonal colorways.

Season DK is a 4-ply superwash merino in 231 yard skeins, just the perfect amount for hats, gloves, scarves in a single skein. Seasons DK is also perfect for sweaters, wraps and blankets. Typically dye batches are 3 skeins but I have the ability to go up to 6 skeins in a batch if you need more for a larger project. Just contact me via the contact button in the upper right hand corner of the Etsy Shop to let me know if you need larger amounts.

Australian Red Cross update: A flock of Heatwave Sock purchases have happened this weekend. I’ll send a new donation over to the Red Cross this coming Friday. Thank you so much for your support. We are doing awesome. My next sock pattern is on the needles.

Heatwave Socks Update

So this morning, I was able to send the first donation to the Australian Red Cross because of your help. I’m rounding up to the nearest $5 plus covering the transaction fees so your support goes as far as possible. Thank you so much for making this possible and helping Australia during this tragedy.

Let’s keep this going as long as possible! I’ll keep you updated with the total amount we have donated so far and keep designing and knitting new patterns to put up in my Ravelry shop. I have lots of ideas for new sock, fingerless gloves and hat patterns running around in my head! The hardest part is deciding which one comes off the needles next!

Find the Heatwave Socks in my Ravelry Store and keep your eyes peeled for new patterns. Every stitch counts!

Knitting Pattern: Heatwave Socks for Australia Red Cross

Fellow knitters, as many of you are aware, Australia is suffering from cataphoric bushfires that have burned 23,000 square miles to date, forcing tens of thousands of people to flee their homes and millions of animals have perished in the fires. The fires have spread so quickly that people have had to flee to the beach for the Australian Navy to rescue them.

The fires have become a global disaster. Smoke from the fires has spread over 9,000 miles to South America. Temperatures have hit record highs in Sydney and Perth. There is little relief for Australia in sight. Australia is in the middle of a devastating, multi-year drought with little rain in forecast and two more months of fire season to go.

Australia needs our help. National resources are strained to capacity. The Australian Prime Minister has called up the national army to help fight the fire and help people evacuate, other countries are sending firefighters and supplies to help fight them.

To help the Australian Red Cross provide assistance to the people evacuated, I have designed the Heatwave Socks, available in my Ravelry Store. All proceeds from the sale of this pattern will go to the Australian Red Cross.

Thank you so much for helping out in any way. Together we can make a difference for Australia one stitch at a time.
