Shawl Every Day 2019

Starting January 1st, I am wearing a different handknit shawl/cowl and sharing some mental health resources. I am doing this so that 1) I can make sure to wear all the things I make instead of just having them sit in a box and 2) reduce the stigma around talking about mental health.  You can follow along on my blog:

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money for Independence Center, and any donation will help make impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
