Knit and Purl Tool | Charity Edition Tools
If you haven’t see the Knit and Purl Tool (KaPT) before you are in for a real treat! Last November Kathy Carder and her husband Frank began producing and selling an ingenious tool to help speed up the process of knitting and purling on a loom. Since that time several design improvements have been added. Kathy has heart for giving so she approached me about desigining special tools to represent some of our favorite charities. I am thrilled to announce the release of the new KaPT Charity Edition tools and some other exciting additions to the KaPT line!
NEW KaPT Charity Edition Tools and Stitch Markers
KaPT cost: $28.00
$2.50 will go to the charity corresponding to the colors of the handle
The Knit and Purl tool comes in both a small and medium hook length with a molded resin handle. Each handle is made in colors to represent a specific charity. (see below)
Stitch Marker cost: 5 stitch markers for $12.00

A21 is a non-profit organization fueled by the radical hope-that human beings everywhere will be rescued from bondage and completely restored. By supporting A21, we are joining them as the new abolitionists of the 21st century. In the 21st century, there are millions of slaves, it is a $150 billion industry and out of the millions of slaves, only 1% is ever rescued. The heart of A21 is for the one, the one woman, the one man, the one child, trapped and exploited, unable to see another end to their story. At A21 they see the one and fights for that one. To support A21is to end human trafficking and to give that one, freedom, independence and the chance at a better life. Every number represents a human life and every rescue brings us closer to being the last generation sold. For further information, please call A21 at (949) 202-4681 or check out their website at A21.org.
The team of Soi Dog are fighting relentlessly to end all butchering and consumption of dog meat. One of the biggest challenges is raising awareness of the plight of street dogs and cats, many were stolen family pets, in Asia and to bring the horrors of the dog meat trade to more people, who have no knowledge that this is even going on. Soi Dog receives no Government support and rely totally on people for funding their work. Over 90% of all donations Soi Dog receives go directly to the animal welfare program.
