Sharing 2020

Formerly, True Vineyard Ministries, this organization rebranded earlier this year to have their mission match their brand.  After prayerfully considering the options of which mission to support, I decided to give Handspun Hope another year.  What drew me back to this organization for another year is how well suited our philosophies are in that we’re both eco-enthusiasts loving the world around us in Christ through fiber arts.

“Social distancing” the buzz word of corona safety has been my prescription for these last 20 years of EI. Truly, the last human touch I experienced, save camera mom and dad, was the doctor during my last exam back in November.

Find God’s blessing in each day – from the unexpected email of a friend, to a gorgeous sunrise or sunset, to a particularly delicious yarn, CS Lewis in “Surprised by Joy” calls these love letters. By making a point to recognize each one, He will revive your spirit in ways only He can. 2. Make use of technology to stay connected. Yes, they may be virtual hugs, but try to imagine them as real and feel the connection the other person is making an effort to share with you! To that end, I’m thrilled to present the following collaborated KAL for your knitting enjoyment:

I first came across Chiaogoo when one of my BFF’s in the industry, the talented Talitha Kuomi, freelanced for their social media. She told me great things about this knitting needle brand and took such attractive product photos, when our KAL approached, I thought it’d be fun to interview them to learn more. The Chiaogoo website tells a bit of their story, but they were kind enough go in depth with us here.
