War and Earthquake

Sock war in progress! And even while knitters are taking each other out by knitting each other lovely socks, knitters everywhere have responded to the call of the Knit Signal.

Ms Yarn Harlot, using her superpowers for good, has called out the knitters to give to Doctors Without Borders.

Then she was buried in emails. She's recruited friends to help her go through the mails, and still hasn't finished tallying and acknowledging. The last twitter I saw reported a total of $166000 so far, counting US and Canadian at par, with a lot of emails left to go.

Go Knitters!

PS I'm too busy knitting to edit some Sock Wars photos to show. I'm doing 2 at a time, and have turned one heel and decreased one gusset. Off to turn and decrease a 2nd.
