I am pleased to announce that thanks to your energetic response to my call a couple of weeks ago, I will be sending a big fat donation to Doctors Without Borders / Medecins Sans Frontieres, in the amount of…


That is definitely a lot (like, a LOT a lot) more than the pattern sales I generally collect in the span of a couple of weeks…hell, in the span of a few months…and the vast majority of that chunk of change is from you folks. (I’m eating the Paypal fees here out of my own pocket, because let’s face it, DWB/MSF is going to do more with it than me.)

Thank you for all your pattern support in the last two weeks – and I hope that you’ll enjoy knitting the patterns as well. It gives me great pleasure to know that there is more of them out in the world, almost as much pleasure as giving away a pile of money.

Thanks, knitters. You rule.


  1. Congratulations Glenna…glad I could help.

  2. That IS awesome!

    Wow! That is a lot of money! You should be thrilled that you can contribute so much. I can’t wait to knit the pattern I bought from you.

    Well done!

    So erm… you’re rich now? 😉

  5. Heh – I wish! None of the money’s staying in my pocket 😉 But it’s going to people that need it more than me, so I’m cool with that.

  6. That’s excellent! 🙂

  7. Awesome!! You should be so proud.

    Your very welcome!

    It was very generous of you to donate everything plus pay the Paypal fees yourself. Lots of good Karma headed your way I hope.

    I liked your free `Basic Black` cardigan pattern, so I`m looking forward to knittng another of your designs.

  9. Yay for you – AND MSF/DWB

  10. You rule! I had already given my limit to the Red Cross so didn’t buy one of your patterns but I congratulate you on your effort. Well done!!
