Happy Juneteenth, everyone.
Today I will spend the day thinking about how meaningful this day is for Black Americans…and how far White America thinks we have come…but has not. And how I can do better.
Now let’s get on with the finds!
Need some listening suggestions? I got you this week!
Also Into America hosted by Trymaine Lee has some smart conversation!
I discovered The Sierra Club’s Overstory podcast this week! It is perfect for my morning journal time!
My knitting brain has been focused on baby knits and this caught my eye this week.
But so did this… because Ansel. Ummm, yeah. It is lovely and it would be the perfect yarn for a sweater. Seriously… you need this in your knitting life. Now!
I know some of you have been doing a flurry of dishcloth knitting… but what about some potholder love?
Carolyn Bloom continues to amaze with her crocheted circles.
And that is all I have for this week! Have a great weekend everyone!
Thanks for the links – especially the NPR interview with Robin DiAngelo. I am going to look into the books she mentions as I need to do more than I have done in the past. My Jeopardy calendar told me this morning that Juneteenth happened in 1865 – so 155 years later and this is still not right, still unjust?! I just can’t wrap my brain around the hate and hurt for so MANY years. We must change…
Thanks for your post!
LOVE the Seven Senses Baby Set!!! Maybe Miss A will have a sister (or brother) someday.Otherwise, I know of no babies.
Also, LOVE the New York Sour!!! And the YARN!!! Love how it comes in different colors based on the natural color of the wool.
Have a great weekend!!!!
Fun and good links as always Kat – thank you. I had not heard of the Sierra Club’s Overstory – looks good. Wondering…are you still crocheting??
That Daisy Potholder is so cute!!!
That crochet project is amazing. I can’t get crochet off my mind and, even though I already have a rather epic project underway, there might be another…
Happy Weekend, Kat!
I am all in on the epic projects right now – LOVE the crochet circle galleries on Instagram. and I totally get the baby knits (malabrigo arroyo is a great yarn to use!) … and re: White Fragility, I highly recommend two podcasts that The Lady Gang and Traci (aka The Stacks Podcast) shared this week. The Lady Gang is three white women and Traci is Black. They had a very frank, honest and enlightening conversation in the two segments.
Thanks for all the links, especially Robin DiAngelo and the Overstory podcast. I love Johnny’s Select Seeds and can’t wait to listen to what the co-CEO has to say. Good stuff, Kat!
I love your Friday posts and all of the links you share – thank you!
That baby sweater is precious. Oh my goodness!!
I just bought a Kindle copy of White Fragility so I could read it again (I read it on library loan the first time). It’s really so good and should be required reading for all white people. I saw that Robin DiAngelo had been on NPR but didn’t have a chance to listen yet, but that’s on the to-do list for the weekend.
Some more lovely links. You are doing a great job of making my knitting projects for the future list longer and longer. We have similar tastes it would seem. I look forward to more of them!
I’m going to be a great aunt (again) and so I am looking at the baby knitting, thanks for the idea!
