on impulseAs soon as I saw Kay’s new blanket pattern I bought it and cast on. The proceeds from the sale of the pattern go to Mercy Corps in Japan. You can also buy the pattern on Ravelry.

Kay’s blocks are knit with Noro and last night I happened upon Cara’s lovely Tahki cotton version. I love both versions, but must admit to feeling some Noro withdrawal. So I’ll be stocking up later in the week.

Just a reminder: I also recommend direct donations to any of the following organizations to help the people of Japan.

The Red Cross
The Japan Society

Money helps the people buy the things that they determine they need for themselves. And every penny counts.
