Knitters for Newtown

100% of the sales for 1 year will be donated!
If you have ever wondered why I have such a hero worship of Sharon from Three Irish Girls, this should put it to rest.  Yesterday, she started a charity movement called Knitters for Newtown.  They have a Ravelry group and a Facebook page so you can keep up with the events however you choose.

This group is dedicated to joining our creative forces to bring comfort and peace to the families effected by the senseless tragedy on Friday morning.  Sharon has two beautiful colorways that she has created and 20% of the sale price (not proceeds, sale price) will go towards helping these families.  We are also going to be creating blanket squares for at least 26 blankets - so that every mother who lost her child that day will have a homemade comfort.  Through these actions, Sharon has pledged to raise $10,000 for this shattered community.

I know that I give away most of my patterns for free but I do have one pattern that is purchasable -My Mama's Slipper pattern.  It's only $1.00 and I promise that all sales from Friday, December 14th until Saturday, December 14, 2013 will be donated.  Purchase the pattern and make a pair of slippers to comfort a loved one, knowing that you are also sending a bit of comfort to Newtown as well.

We can't undo the horrific events of that day but we can show them that there is still good in this world.  That people they have never even met are aching alongside them and we want nothing more than to bring them peace and comfort.  Won't you join us in making a difference?
