Have a great week and be true to yourself!
Sakaki report: beaded shawl finished and ready to be blocked. Pattern test knitted. Corrections and clarifications being made. Pattern to be released this week.
Dilemma: to what charity shall the proceeds be donated? MSF is not earmarking funds for Japan but they are doing a ton of work there. As much as I admire the Red Cross, a little too much of each donation goes to overhead for my taste. I am inclined to give the first sales through some period of time (perhaps June) to a charity that allows earmarking for Japan, and the remainder (up to 10,000 patterns sold, like Brandywine) to MSF, even though they are not earmarking donations. I admire them tremendously and I know they will continue to work in Japan until they are no longer needed.
Do any of you have suggestions for a great charity doing work in Japan?
