Today is apparently going to be a post-heavy day since I’ve been gone for a while. Earlier this week, Taiga Hilliard started the #getyouryarnwishes granted movement on Instagram. This is the second year that I have participated in the movement. The instructions for this movement are that you post this picture and ask for things you’ve been wishing for.
If someone is able to help you out they can grant your wish, and if you see a wish you can grant for someone else, you can pay it forward. People ask for yarn, notions, project bags, and especially Ravelry patterns. It is a really fun movement that allows us as a fiber community to spread love through gift giving.
This year, I have been able to grant 24 wishes, both yarn and project bags and also Ravelry patterns. Ravelry patterns are so easy to grant because almost everyone has a Ravelry wish list of patterns they are coveting. I have also had a number of wishes that have been granted by others for yarns I have never used before or patterns on my Ravelry wishlist.
Are you participating in #getyouryarnwishesgranted this year? Are you doing any charity knitting this holiday season? I’d love to hear about it!
