You may have heard that both Churchmouse Yarns & Teas on Bainbridge Island, and Serial Knitters in Kirkland are closing their brick and mortar shops. Both shops cited the effects of operating in the COVID-19 economy, and will continue operations online.
My own experiences with Churchmouse span more than a decade—favorite day trips often involved a ferry boat ride, a treat at Blackbird Bakery, and leisurely poking through the yarns at Churchmouse. I’m really sad to see them go.
We’re going to be living in a changed world for some time—let’s all continue to be kind to one another, and be thoughtful about the ways we can offer support.
Note: on July 1st, the Wednesday Zoom KAL will transition from the Casapinka KAL to the SOUNDTRACK KAL (although you’re always more than welcome to work on anything you like!)

Are you missing travel? Did you know that you can search Ravelry patterns by “Designer Country”? From the home page, choose the “Patterns” tab, then click on “Advanced Search.” The sidebar on the left has a “Jump to a Filter” option, and if you scroll down far enough, you’ll find “Designer Country.” Given that most of us aren’t traveling too far from home these days, this can be a fun way to explore the creativity of people around the world!
(You can also do an advanced search of “People”—i.e. regular Ravelry users—by country.)
