However, I still wanted to show off the smaller ones as well. Here is where ALL of the paintings from 2022 will be, in order of when I finished them. I’ll notate which ones have timelapses and which do not. If I made a timelapse, I will add the videos… Hope you like them!

  1. “Kitten And Cookies” by Maryline Cazenave 
  2. Winter Moon 
  3. Pastel Moon 
  4. “Brizland” by Brizbazaar (4 timelapse videos. See post)

My 2022 Love Story Outlander Marker Calendar Vlog

Hiya all! Just like the title suggests, I purchased AdoreKnit’s wonderful 2022 Love Story Outlander Marker Calendar. This will be Advent-style. I’ll be putting up daily vlogs as I open each one. Right now… There’s 14 days until Outlander Season 6 premieres (and “Droughtlander”  ends), so I thought it a good idea to start opening it now. It’s been TORTURE to not look for spoilers and open them all early… But I REALLY wanted to make vlogs when I open them, so… I waited…

Alright. Enough Delaying… Here we go!!!

    1. Knit For Food Knit-a-thon 2022
      1. Knit for Food Knit-a-thon is a 12 hour knitting marathon to raise funds and awareness for food insecurity. The money we raise will be equally divided between Feeding America, World Central Kitchen, No Kid Hungry, and Meals on Wheels.
      2. The knit-a-thon will take place virtually on February 12th, from 10am-10pm. There will be some programming throughout the day (music, speakers, breakout knitting rooms, yoga, stretching, knitting ergonomics, etc.). We’ll hear from each of the four organizations that we’re fundraising for to learn more about the work they’re doing. There is a $100 fundraising minimum to attend the zoom. More details will be coming along with a schedule closer to the event! The zoom programming is completely optional! You could stay home on your own, get together with another knitter, or gather with a group of crafty friends at your LYS and stay offline. The choice is completely yours.
      3. The Crafty Zen has a team. Sher of MeditativeCrafting and I are heading up this team. I will be opening up a group event on Discord. You are more than welcome to join in the chat and knit/craft along. Just let me know soon-ish so I can give you permissions to do so on that group. I’m still looking into doing the same on the FB group. Please let me know if you’d be interested in joining. I’d LOVE to have you!!!
      4. If you are so inclined… Please feel free to donate (via GiveButter) using our link.  https://givebutter.com/knitforfood22/TheCraftyZenCrew
      5. I bought merch for the event, because of course I did. I missed out on it last year, as I signed up SUPER late. I have a Tshirt and Tumbler for the event… Can’t wait to use both!!!
