There’s a place in all our hearts for frontline superheroes who have shown the world that for them to go to work is an act of bravery for which we can never thank them enough. But, during COVID-19, many have made contributions that go way beyond showing up. So we’ve made a special place at Knit + Escape for a frontline superhero who knits, and if you know them as a friend, family member or colleague, you can nominate them to win that place. One of our speakers is a passionate knitter and healthcare professional, her work inspired us to share Knit + Escape with one more.
