In Fingering weight yarn, Good for gradients, Patterns, Scarves, Shop sample available by Shannon

What’s one to do when faced with the never-ending onslaught that is this new political reality? Plot and plan with friends. And knit, of course.

This now includes the guide for the 2021 Temperature Project from ShannaJean, which will help you make a temperature wrap or scarf. It’s a printable guide, which includes a color-in thermometer and a monthly chart to track temperatures and colors used, as well as a single strand of fingering-weight yarn to make the Persistence pattern in 2 different widths (scarf and wrap).
