🌿Happy liberation day, Madame Cannabis!🌿
I digress from your usual feed of yarn porn for something close to me heart.
❤ From today onward, you don't need a medical prescription to legally obtain and partake of #cannabis in Canada. As a #spoonie & sufferer of #chronicpain, this means that access to life changing pain management is easier and accessible without having to attend yet another doctor's appointment. 💯 Legal and accessible, yes. But the stigma is still there: I myself suffered much longer than necessary because of that stigma and fear of taking cannabis. #THC triggers my anxiety and depression, as it does for many. I was reluctant to try #CBD products (the cannabinoid in cannabis that makes you relaxed, cozy, and pain free) because of a fear of those side effects. I only tried it a few weeks ago, and if the stigma wasn't there I might have found relief 10 months ago when my head injury occurred.💀
🎁Let's share what doctors won't. Let's increase awareness of the effectiveness of cannabis. Let's work to fight the #stigma that still abounds now that people can come out of the cannabis-closet.

Sometimes my creative ideas don't work out... this is NOT one of those times 😄 I am so in ❤ with how PHANTASMAGORIA knits up!! 😍

Enjoying what will probably be one of the last outdoor knit-and-lunch days of the year. My Halloween #sofadedsweater only has a few inches to go!

I'm considering upgrading Devil's Night from seasonal Halloween yarn to permanent collection. I can see this firey 🔥yarn fitting into so many seasons and project ideas! ❓Any suggestions on a new name? Puns get preference of course! I'm a terrible word nerd 😎

PHANTASMAGORIA is one of the new colourways being added this week. Inspired by the horror 💀adventure point-and-click videogame of the same name. This red is SO RICH 💎 it would make an excellent statement accessory. I gave one skein to my mom, she'll be knitting held with a skein of LONDON FOG ⛅, my soft grey speckled yarn, to give a marled fabric with a little less contrast. I can't wait to see how it looks!

The days are getting shorter 🌓 and the mercury is dropping, but that doesn't mean we need to stick to muted hues and 🌎 Earth tones. As much as I love the classic Autumn colours, it's nice to see a splash of sunshine 🌞 amidst grey skies.⛅ Yellow and grey just pair so happily together - it makes me nostalgic for big yellow ☔ rain boots and splashing in puddles 💦on a stormy day ⚡⚡

Today I've been making headway on my #sofadedsweater and I couldn't be happier 😍 with how this black turned out to be anything but basic. When I was dyeing my Halloween Farts test, I fumbled 😥 on the colour sequence and decided to just dye this one black for my fade set. Well, I didn't make the black quite dark enough, so it just glazed over the existing colour.🌈 When the light shines I can see the faintest orange, purple, and green lying beneath. ⛅
What seems at first like a mistake might turn out the be the coolest feature yet 💖 Follow your gut and take all the risks and the universe will be yours for the taking ⭐🌠⭐
