Imagine opening a big box full of colorful and intricate hand-made knitted gifts, made just for you, and in gratitude for who you are and what you do: that’s the gift a group of knitters over at the knit and crochet community Ravelry give to us each year. And it’s all coordinated and delivered by Annie, a knitter and Ravelry member local to Seattle (Annie starred in our Maker’s Bag video.)

This year’s knitted gifts were scarves, cowls and shawls — just what we needed before some unusually cold winter days here in Seattle! It’s a remarkable and inspiring act of kindness, and we hope the generosity of these knitters and crocheters inspires you as much as it does us to find opportunities to share our own acts of kindness, big or small.

Photos of each shawl and scarf — so you can enjoy them along with us — are below.

Thank you, Annie and the TOM BIHN Ravelry group!
