Knitters, unite

We interrupt this procrastination and avoidance of industrious working to meet deadlines to call your attention to an extremely worthy cause. Please go here to read about the raffle of the original Great American Afghan by XRX (publishers of Knitter's Magazine), in order to help a beloved, longtime employee with ovarian cancer get experimental treatment.

Actual afghan being given away (adorable tots not included)

I know that I am known for my irreverent, often snarky sense of humor, but underneath the crusty exterior I am touched and honored by the kind hearts of knitters. As a community, we come together so many times to help each other. Please consider buying a ticket for this worthy cause -- and since this raffle is sponsored by the CEO of Knitter's Magazine, you can do so with confidence that this is on the up-and-up. Sending warm wishes to Sue and the XRX family.
