Hi Friends! We hope you are all staying safe and sane in these crazy times. In an effort to help our community while protecting ourselves, we are really excited to announce the Social Distancing Box! 🧶💕 For $30 we will send you one exclusive skein of Palooza (fingering), a bag of immune-system-boosting tea from our faves @tupelohoneyteas, and a sock pattern recommendation! We figure now is a great time to finish a pair of socks! 🧦 And the BEST part is that all profits will be used to keep the Little Free Food Pantries in Millvale fully stocked with food and snacks to keep our community well fed for the foreseeable future. 🏠💕 We also set up a donate button on our website for people who want to help but don't need yarn. 💗 Thanks for being the best, we love yinz. 🥰 . . . . #joinourstitchparty #lovemillvale #coronaviruspittsburgh #inthistogether #socialdistancing

All of the profits from The Social Distancing Box will go to filling the little free pantries around Millvale. (The little free pantries are like little free libraries, but they are stocked with food instead of books.).
