There has been an awesome response to people donating some profits from their patterns to help Haiti. The end of the month is coming up in a few days & right now the total I’m set to donate is at least $69. That’s just incredible. And since it is way more than I’d normally sell, I decided to spend some of my portion on patterns too. I bought both of Ysolda’s collections. Don’t ask me why I waited so long to do that, because I’ve no clue, but it worked out well for donations as she’s giving 80% to Doctors Without Borders. I also bought Kristen Rengren‘s Harlow pattern. I have appropriate stash yarn for this, just not enough time. All of this donating means that the total for the Yarn Harlot’s Tricoteuses Sans Frontières / Knitters Without Borders is now over $1,000,000 since 2004. Crazy, no?
Progress on Miralda’s shawl was good for a while but has slowed with a silly work/life schedule. I’m in the home stretch and I’ve started the final chart. I’m about 10 rows into it and it’s easy to remember. The decreasing should mean that it’s still possible to finish it this weekend for my first entry into the 10 shawls in 2010 group! Stay tuned for pictures.
