The Longest day KAL
with Ann Budd
Sunday, June 20
On the longest day of the year, our good friend Ann Budd knits from sunup to sundown to raise awareness (and funds) for the Alzheimer’s Association. Ann has designed a project specifically for this event: Fading Memories Socks – pattern available here. Ann will donate $5 from every pattern purchase. In Ann’s words: “The cable-and-eyelet pattern in my Fading Memories Socks represents the twists and turns in the memories of those afflicted with Alzheimer’s…” Bazaar Girls has joined with three other yarn shops across North America to host free Zoom knit-along sessions with Ann as she knits her way through the day. You can give Ann moral support, a “thumbs up” emoji, a donation, or just hang out for an hour or all day. Each of the four events will have a secret word. Those who come up with all four words at the end of the day will enter a drawing for the socks Ann will knit during the event. Please join us to visit and raise awareness of this devastating illness that has touched so many of our families.
