Help a knitter out!
On the eve of the anniversary of my grandmother's passing, I came across this blog post by Benjamin Levisay, CEO of XRX (they're responsible for Knitter's Magazine, countless books, and the fabulous Stitches Expos), which hit close to home for me. It's been 13 years since my grandmother died of ovarian cancer, and I can't help feeling that it wasn't a coincidence that I stumbled upon this story tonight. I've seem some really amazing examples of the knitting community banding together to help those in need - crafters and non-crafters alike - and I hope that everyone will spread Sue's story and help her get the treatment she needs. Please consider purchasing a raffle ticket to help defray the cost of her medical bills and let her know just how many people are wishing her well in her battle.
