Fundraiser, Fucus asparagoides Shawl

I’m selling pieces from the Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet books to raise money for Black Lives Matter and the Equal Justice Initiative. I’m starting with the Fucus asparagoides Shawl from The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet, Volume III.

I just adore the shape of this shawl. It sits on your shoulders just so, and the curve on the back is more satisfying than it has any right to be.  It’s knit with Plucky Single, a lovely silk and merino blend from The Plucky Knitter.  And it’s about 48 inches wide at the widest point, 16 inches tall at the center back, and 10 inches tall at the edges.

If you’d like to bid on it, leave a comment on this instagram post with your bid (I know not everyone is on instagram, but have to keep all the bids in one place just for logistical reasons, and instagram is where I think I can raise the most money, so I’m doing it there).  Bidding starts at $50.00.  Please bid in whole dollar increments.  Shipping is included in the bid, but I can only ship to US addresses.

Bidding closes at 8:00 am, eastern time, Tuesday June 16. Whoever has the highest bid at that point wins. I’ll contact them via instagram message and ask for an email address. Once I have an address, I’ll send a paypal invoice.  I’ll need to hear back from you within 24 hours or else I’ll move on to the next highest bidder. Your piece will ship within 2 business days from when you pay the invoice. It will ship with tracking and insurance and signature confirmation, and I’ll send you the tracking number so you can keep an eye on it.

All the money raised, less paypal and shipping fees, will be divided evenly between Black Lives Matter and the Equal Justice Initiative. I’ll make one combined donation to each agency once all the invoices are paid and pieces are shipped, and I’ll share screenshots so we can all see what we did!
