Look At This! Graphics for US!

Jen and Angela teamed up to create graphics for our project. Feel free to take this image and put it in your sidebar (please leave the bandwidth... don't want to get blogger mad!) Thanks friends! You did great!

I am going to set up a cafe' press site to get this image printed on a number of things. I know I need a shirt! All profits from the sales of items will go directly to the charity of choice for the family we are knitting/crocheting for.

I will let you know when the store goes live!

Our First Project

Dearest Knitters and Crocheters,

We come to you today with a call for help. On December 23rd this year Angela and Therese lost their Father, Brother and young Sister in a horrific car accident.

These ladies were in the car as well when it crashed and managed to survive…but at the loss of 3 of their family members.

April 14th will mark the youngest daughter Little Angela’s birthday, which will certainly be a hard day for both of these brave women.

We are asking you knitters and crocheters to help us. These ladies need comfort. A small square…a little of your time and a lot of your compassion can help us.

We would like to be able to give these ladies a comfort blanket each, not in remeberance, but so they know…they are never alone.

If you are willing and able to commit to one square here are the guidelines:

8 inches by 8 inches made of worsted weight washable wool

pattern does not matter…these blankets will not be uniform…I want the ladies to know that each square came from and individual.

A little note that lets them know who you are and where you are from…I would like to attach these to your square to the ladies can see how far and wide comfort comes to them.

All Squares must be received by March 1st.

If you are able to commit to sharing compassion thru fiber please email us at:

Here are the articles on the tragedy…please read

Thank you,

The Purl Grrls

P.S. We have also set up a PAYPAL button to donate to the family's charity of choice. They have chosen to have donations made to the MS Society in Canada.

Edit: The email link on the sidebar has been fixed (thanks Kellie!) We apologize if your emails bounced back. Please send again!- E
