Sight is Life is an initiative which funds the work of a doctor in the Democratic Republic of Congo restoring sight of 1,800 people annually. All proceeds are donated to this ophthalmologic work in the poorest country in the world.
The Sight is Life e-book will contain 7 accessory patterns including the Okapi Socks. The e-book will also contain designs by Boo Knits, Joji Locatelli, Kristina Vilimaite, Romi Hill, tincanknits, and Veera Välimäki. Additionally, the e-book will include a shawl pattern presented as a Mystery Knit-A-Long! The shawl pattern was developed by 7 designers together including Ambah O’Brien, Hanna Maciejewska, Helen Stewart, Josh Ryks, Kristina Vilimaite, Lee Meredith, and Monika Sirna.
I used KnitCircus Greatest of Ease as the yarn for this pattern and we’re giving away the same yarn as a KAL prize. Join a Knit-A-Long for these socks in the Sight is Life group and you might just win some of this gorgeous yarn!
Whether you purchase the Sight is Life e-book or the individual Okapi Socks pattern you’ll be helping someone in need. Head over to the Sight is Life Ravelry to learn more about this great cause and check out the other patterns!
