Calling All Knitters!

What?  You don't know what that is?  It's the knit-signal, alerting all the knitters of Gotham City (and the blogosphere) that help is needed.  That little bit of money you've been squirreling away for your next yarn purchase?  The latest BlogHer check that you haven't cashed yet while you decide which size circulars you need to purchase?  The loose change on your husband's dresser he'll never miss that you had planned to spend on a little something at Michael's to tide you over?

It's needed.  In Haiti.  Right now.  That's right, Knitters Without Borders has been reactivated by the esteemed Yarn Harlot in order to assist Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders, you non-French-speaking rubes) in helping the Haitians cope with the devastation that has been wrought upon their island.

The knit-signal has been activated!  Go to Stephanie's page to learn how to help.  Or go directly to the Doctors Without Borders donation page.  Let's show the world what knitters can do.

[Oh, and you non-knitters?  You're welcome to donate, too.  Heck, you must have lots of extra money lying around if you're not spending it at Knitpicks or Webs like the rest of us...]


  1. Bless you!

  2. I just sent money to the Red Cross International fund, but I love the calling all knitters signal. I'm going to keep checking the sky for it.

  3. "The knit-signal has been activated!" That was too cute!

  4. That is the best cry for help I've seen yet today.

  5. This was awesome. I wish I could knit.
    Off to see what can be done.
