Buy a Pattern, Help Those in Need

By Lauren

Hey Guys!  I’m happy to tell you that I have survived Hurricane Sandy – I holed myself in my apartment knitting through the whole thing, and am so very fortunate to live in a neighborhood in Manhattan that was not subject to power loss or flooding.  Millions of others in Sandy’s path were not as fortunate though.  Without going into sad details, many have lost their entire homes and possessions, are stranded in areas without resources, and are in desperate need of the basics such as food, water, clothing, and shelter.

Today I will be donating 100% of Girly Knits pattern proceeds to the Red Cross, who provide these basic needs to people when disaster strikes.  If you buy a pattern today (available on Ravelry and Craftsy), not only will you get a fun new knitting pattern, but you will be helping those in need.  Alternatively, if you would like to make your own individual Red Cross donation which you can do here, please forward a receipt of the donation to me at and I will give you a coupon code via Ravelry for one free Girly Knits pattern of your choice.   I hope together we can make a difference!

    Never really think of you in America. So sad to hear about everything going on. Even my boys were worried about it all. So glad you are ok. I shall tweet a link to this to try and get some more traffic to you and spread the word. xxx

      That’s so funny! Do I sound British? I know at times I wish I was so that would be cool! Haha, Where in the UK are you? Thanks so much for helping spread the word! I am so pleased with the response to this 🙂
