After what we can all pretty much agree was a rubbish 2016, I started 2017 with a very clear and renewed sense of action, asking myself what can I do in my every day life to make the world just a tiny bit better. Many of those actions were about how I use my time and money in my personal life to make the world just a bit better, but when Emily from Tin Can Knits approached me to design a wee heart for the new book Heart on my Sleeve, it felt like a small way that I could contribute to a good cause using my work.
The Heart on My Sleeve charity ebook is such a lovely premise - the sweaters are all Dk weight knit designs with the same body and sleeves, with a number of yokes designed by different designers to choose from at the end, sized from baby to adult. Alexa and Emily are donating 100% of the proceeds of each ebook (after fees) to the Against Malaria Foundation. These funds will be used to purchase nets to prevent malaria and save lives.
There are 8 sweater designs in total, as well as some lovely motifs to put on your sleeves. While they are mostly knit, but you may notice a small crochet one designed by me!
You can purchase the ebook via Ravelry here.
