What’s better than supporting Black Dyers and Knitters? Reading Black Literature!
Join us as we discuss A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry and knit socks using the lazy after thought heel method.
This KAL is about being seen and heard. When I read stories by Black authors, I feel both seen and heard. Knitting gives me a sense of spiritual peace. With BlackKnitLit I bring this wholeness to you. By joining together, we can create a sense of community that has been lost in the pandemic. And by knitting together, reading a story that is not often told, we have an opportunity to strengthen our diverse community.
WHATS IN THE KIT
- A full skein of Good Ole Sock yarn in limited edition color
