…I officially can’t shut up! ;o)

I normally don’t post on Saturdays, but this is too important to wait until the end of the weekend. You see, there’s a fiberista who needs a bit of a boost from her fellow knitters and spinners.

Some of you who have been at this blogging thing for a while will remember PippiKneeSocks – she lives in Vermont and dyes lovely, gorgeous, heart-stopping yarn and roving. Or, at least she did up until a while ago. You see, life hasn’t been very kind to her and her family lately which didn’t help the ‘creative’ side of her – it’s hard to be creative when you’re worried about anything and everything, you know? So, because of this, she stopped posting, stopped dyeing, stopped spinning, stopped knitting. Recently, Amy of Spunky Eclectic posted that Pippi needed help and, even though she was putting her life on the line by putting it out there, she was asking people to help.

I put three skeins of handspun in the mail immediately. I seriously have never mailed anything so fast before in my life – you see, I don’t know Pippi very well but she did consider hiring me as her bookkeeper before everything went all crazy so I have spoken to her once or twice. She is one of the nicest people on the planet and it’s seriously not cool what the planet has been doing to her lately. SO, if you had a hankering to own this skein:

Spunky Club - Tulips

or this one:

Merino/Tencel from The Sheep Shed - "New England"

or even this one:

Spunky Club - Strawberry Fields

Or a skein of yarn from spinners way more talented than I, keep an eye on this page, Amy’s auctioning off stuff left and right AND Scout has a raffle going, for every $5 you donate, your name goes into a hat to win some gorgeous yarn or one of two $50 gift cards to her shop (and possibly some other stuff).

I’m happy to say that I’ve heard Pippi recently picked up the needles again. You see? Knitting Karma is a powerful thing. So is friendship – kudos to Amy for stepping up to the plate. Sometimes you have to do what needs to be done for a friend even if they don’t like it. ;o)
