How is everyone doing? I hope you're taking care of yourselves the best you can and are hanging in there. We've been fortunate to have Knot By Gran'ma based out of the house, so aside from the extra people always around and noise, it's been business as usual.
A friend of mine posted about how she was making masks to send off to the National Guard that was posted nearby. She shared this great mask pattern from Deaconess and encouraged everyone who could sew to start sewing. This was exactly what I needed because feeling like I couldn't help aside from staying home was nagging at me.
There was a brief, losing battle with my old sewing machine, which ended up with another friend donating her unused machine. I've been spending a lot of time cutting, ironing, and sewing. Making masks, as it turns out, is almost as therapeutic as crocheting. Who knew? Sewists, Jess. Sewists knew.
Update: 200 face masks have been donated to medical facilities in need. It's been a very busy few months.
You can still shop the regular items at Knot By Gran'ma also. I've added gift wrap to the shop and will ship out directly to your recipients if needed. We're still having birthdays and whatnot, so I'd still like to help you make someone you love smile.
Stay well, and thanks for your support.
