Welcome back and enjoy the video for December 5th:
Fundraising for KIVA through vlogmas
As I talked about in detail in Episode 88 of the podcast, I have set up a Ko-fi page to accept $3 donations (the price of a coffee) and I will be donating half to a worthwhile project via www.kiva.org. I will also be donating 10% of my income from Patreon for November, December and January.
Kiva provides loans to people in areas of the world with great poverty so that they can establish or grow their own business and fight their way out of that poverty. I am aiming to fund craft-based business and I will be talking about the projects later in vlogmas.
Links to stuff I talk about!
I’m making the Worsted Boxy sweater by Joji Locatelli using my own Corriepol DK pure wool yarn. The colours I’m using are Kingfisher (the lovely deep turquoise), Shale (the darker grey), Shadow (the lighter grey). Prices start at £12 per 100g skein (250 metres).
I edit my photographs using the free software from Photoscape. You can download the version for Mac or PC and it works really well. A Pro version is available (paid) but I’ve never needed the features.
Bluebells Rock on my Amazon Warrior base is now 10% off and available already caked 🙂
My yarn advent minis were purchased from Wild Rose Yarn and Hedgerow Yarns on Etsy.
See you tomorrow!
