Y’all saw the Yarn Harlot throw up the Knit Signal, right? (And, er, that’s “throw up” as in “raise.” Not as in vomit.)
Well, Ravelry responded, with a special “help for Haiti” tag on patterns. Designers are donating a portion of their pattern sales to various organizations that are providing aid in Haiti. You can browse through the participating patterns, and even search for patterns already in your queue that are helping out. Each pattern will have text in the description telling you how much will be donated, and to what organizations.
For my small part, from now until January 31, 2010, 50% of the price of my Elinor’s Mittens and Pickadilly pattern downloads will be donated to Partners in Health and Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders. Thank you!
Oh, and because someone once told me that all blog posts need photos, please enjoy this picture of my sleeping puppy.
