Kaleidoscope was created for the Balance Shawlette in collaboration with Lola of Third Vault Yarns and Crafting Queer Future.

It was inspired by the idea that our differences are beautiful. We are unique, and all our colors are better together.

Our shawl uses 2 skeins of Tabby DK and draws on the idea of duality: perceived imbalance that is actually balanced when taken as a whole. Completeness and overall joy.

Crafting Queer Future is a collaborative project by LGBTQIA+ Dyers and Designers of the global majority remembering and acknowledging the past and current world climate for LGBTQIA+ people whilst imagining and working towards better, brighter and safe futures for us all. 

We have designed knitting patterns and dyed yarn and fiber centering this theme and fundraising via Crowdfunder for The Trans Law Centre in the US, LGBT Foundation in the UK and the Stephen Lewis Foundation Partners In Pride in Sub Saharan Africa and direct mutual aid for multiply marginalized LGBTQIA+ people, with a 25% split for all of them. 

Our wonderful collaborators are Koomase, I Am Fully Spun, Mother of Purl, Knit Boop, Kitty PrideFibers/DyeHardYarns, & Third Vault Yarns. We have so many amazing contributors that are helping us raise funds by providing prizes for the prize draw we'll be holding via crowdfunder.
