Japan and Knitting

So many knitters are stepping up to help the people of Japan – it’s so heartwarming. Here are a few examples.

Ladydanio on Etsy is donating $3.11 of every purchase to GlobalGiving.org.

Knitwhits is donating 30% of sales to American Red Cross.

PDXKnitteratti is donating 100% of sales of her gorgeous Pacific Shawl pattern to the Red Cross.

Caryl Pierre is donating 20% of her stunning pattern sales to Save the Children (you have to use Ravelry to click on this link.)

RebelYarn on Etsy is donating 25% of sales to Red Cross.

Garilynn is donating 50% of sales to Red Cross.

Each of these donations is for a specific amount of time so check out their websites for full details.

And speaking of Japan and knitting, I visited Habu in New York City, a tiny little knit shop in the fashion district that carries specialty yarn direct from Japan. It’s an amazing place. I took as many photos as I could.
