If you are a knitter, you know we are a caring bunch! You have only to look at the money that Stephanie Pearl-McPhee aka the Yarn Harlot, has raised for Doctors Without Borders to see that. (yep, that's just over ONE MILLION. She beats us unmercifully.....um...guilts us outrageously....um..... ENCOURAGES us OFTEN to think about how much we have in comparison to so many others throughout the world....)
Now Wendy Johnson of Wendy Knits has offered a LOVELY triangular shawl pattern for sale, with 100% of the profits going to the Red Cross for the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
See Wendy's blogpost and pattern here
And if you aren't into shawls (or knitting lace), she also mentions a log cabin quilt-inspired knit blanket by Kay Gardiner of Mason-Dixon Knitting.
Here's the blanket information
And if you aren't a knitter, pick up some pointy sticks and string and BECOME ONE!!!!
