A Big Thank You

I owe you all a big thank you. Why? Because this morning I did this:

You can clicky-clicky to make bigger. But if you don’t wanna, I’ll tell you what it is. It is my donation of 50% of my profits from my last two weeks of Ravelry pattern sales  to Doctors Without Borders in the amount of $1,255.00. Thank you to each and every one of you who bought one or more of my patterns! Woo-hoo!

It hurts to sit at the ‘puter (whine, whine, whine) so I’ll just quickly show you what I’m knitting:

And Lucy is just lounging around like the princess she is.

Thanks again!!

    How great you must feel (except that darn back) that your creation has given to so many. Not only will us knitters enjoy knitting your pattern, but the people we give the shawl to will love it. And all the help thru Doctors without borders. I applaud you Wendy. You are allowed to wine if ya want but I hope you get that back better real soon Wendy
    Dear Princess Lucy, You Go Girl. If you wanna just hang out…Do It.
    Love and hugs,

  6. Awesome is the word! And rockstar, too. You’re a generous lady and we’re privileged to be able to help you to support Doctors Without Borders. And I’m gobsmacked by the amount of money you raised in just two weeks.

  8. That’s awesome! KWB: Knitters without Borders! 🙂

  9. When I read that various designers were donating part of their profits to help in Haiti, I smiled and thought good thoughts about them, but I had no idea that the sales would mount up so high — great work!

  13. Congratulations on being able to make such a wonderfully large donation. It would be interesting to learn how much all the Ravelry designers’ donations brought in.
    You have to be one of the world’s fastest knitters. I am looking forward to the unveiling of you latest creation. We do hope you feel better very soon.

  14. Thank you for donating a portion of your proceeds. Your generosity, and that of many of your fellow fiber folk, will make a great difference in people’s lives.
