We all know about the terrible earthquake that struck Haiti last week.
I have been very impressed with the Help for Haiti efforts on Ravelry. If you’re unfamiliar with what’s happening, many designers have decided to donate a portion of their proceeds from certain patterns to a charity that will benefit Haitians.
I have to admit that my pattern sales are pretty slim, with only one for-sale pattern. But this morning, I heard about the horrible aftershock that hit the already devastated area and decided that any contribution is better than no contribution. From now through February 14, 2010, I will be donating 50% of profits from my Epitome pattern to Doctors Without Borders. I have just updated the pattern to change the recommended yarn and it now includes an additional size for adults with larger noggins. If you decide that Epitome isn’t the hat for you, please consider purchasing any of the patterns on the Ravelry list.
