Fundraiser, Polypodium vulgare and Metopsilus porcellus Cowls
Published On: June 18, 2020

I’m selling pieces from the Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet books to raise money for Black Lives Matter and the Equal Justice Initiative. Today I’m listing the Polypodium vulgare cowl from The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet, Volume I and the Metopsilus porcellus cowl from The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet, Volume III.

These both absolutely glow. They’re both from 50/50 merino silk yarns, and I swear everyone looks like they’ve had a good night’s sleep with that mix up by their faces.  The green one is 21 inches around and 10 inches high and has the most delightful fluted edges.  The pink one is 36 inches around (long enough to wear in a single loop or doubled over) and 9 inches high and is reversible.  Either one will keep you feeling cozy and looking adorable!

Now, I know it’s a bit tricky to list two at once, but I’m totally sure we can do this.  All you have to do is say ‘pink’ or ‘green’ after your bid to let me know which one you’re bidding on (you’re only bidding on one, if you want both, feel free to leave two comments with a bid for each).  And don’t worry, I’ll double check with you before anything goes in the mail to be sure sure you’re getting what you want.  But really, we’re knitters, we’re clever, we can handle this!

If you’d like to bid on it, leave a comment on this instagram post with your bid (I know not everyone is on instagram, but have to keep all the bids in one place just for logistical reasons, and instagram is where I think I can raise the most money, so I’m doing it there).  Bidding for each cowl starts at $20.00.  Please bid in whole dollar increments.  Shipping is included in the bid, but I can only ship to US addresses.

Bidding closes at 8:00 am, eastern time, Friday June 19. Whoever has the highest bid at that point wins. I’ll contact them via instagram message and ask for an email address. Once I have an address, I’ll send a paypal invoice.  I’ll need to hear back from you within 24 hours or else I’ll move on to the next highest bidder. Your piece will ship within 2 business days from when you pay the invoice. It will ship with tracking and insurance and signature confirmation, and I’ll send you the tracking number so you can keep an eye on it.

All the money raised, less paypal and shipping fees, will be divided evenly between Black Lives Matter and the Equal Justice Initiative. I’ll make one combined donation to each agency once all the invoices are paid and pieces are shipped, and I’ll share screenshots so we can all see what we did!
