Molly's Needles

My adventures in knitting... and a few other things thrown in for fun.

I got back into knitting because of the Harry Potter scarves and sweaters. Although I knit other items, replicating HP-wear remains my first love.

Let's do our bit

While browsing my daily reads, I came across two ladies who are organizing to help those in need from Katrina. Check out the posts by either Margene or Susan for all the details on how you can help.

Basically, what they are asking is that you donate to The American Red Cross (any amount you can afford). Then, send an email to this address with your name and the amount in the subject line. They will have a tally list of all donations received. Plus, you will be entered into a drawing for items donated by people.

If you would like to donate a prize, send an email to the same address, putting the word "Prize" in the subject line and they will get back to you on where to send it. You can send some yarn, books, handmade stitch markers or something you have knitted. You get the idea. There is a blog set up that maintains a list of donations already received. And an auction will be set up for some extraordinary items.

Watching the news everyday has been heartbreaking. Here's our chance to do a little bit for those people.
