That day will arrive. Knit as many as you can. You will receive extra entries for any pattern that was favorited over 5 years. Check out the Quarter 2 Thread Events Check out Knitty’s list of Canceled Fiber Events & ways you can support the vendors who are losing out on business. Life in Focus My approach to getting through COVID-19 (so far) Establishing new routines & keeping up with existing ones. Make a list of routines that you normally do. Find a way to keep doing those. Make a list of things you’ve been wanting to do but never have time- some fun, some chores. Decide how to divide out. One per day?  Maybe have your whole family make a list- turn it into a challenge! Learn something new. A language. A new knitting skill? A new craft?  Each day make a list of GOOD things that have happened. Something you accomplished. Someone you connected with. Time you spent on something you otherwise couldn’t.  Gretchen R
