In theory, it's all about the fiber – knitting, crocheting, sewing, and spinning – but really, it's all about my life.

Haiti

Yeah.  I don’t really know what to say – it’s so much.  So devastating, so awful, that I don’t even have words.  What I do have are two ways you can help, if you are so inclined, and haven’t done so already.

My friend Mary works for CHF International, and they are very active in Haiti.  They have been for some time, and in fact have (had) an office in Port-au-Prince.  Mary was there just two months ago herself, which is such a scary thing to think about for me.  Anyway, CHF is taking donations, and information is on their website here about how you can help.

For my knitterly-inclined peeps, if you are on Ravelry, you may have heard about the auctions being held by the “Completely Pointless and Arbitrary” group.  So far, they have raised almost $4,000 in donations to various charities.  Well, this Friday, my wonderful employers Sarah and Gryphon are offering up four skeins of custom-dyed Bugga! yarn for one of the auctions.  And yes, they will dye it in any Sanguine Gryphon colorway, even a discontinued one.  So, if your interest is piqued by this, take a stroll over to CPA and check out the auctions thread.

    Thanks so much for blogging about this, Pam. CHF has two offices in Port-au-Prince actually but thankfully all 170 of our employees survived the earthquake and all the after shocks.

    Besides donating my own money to Haiti, I will continue to pray for them. Lifting everything up to Heaven for them.
