  • Thanks so much for your timely and heartfelt response in helping the people of the Philippines.


  • I can’t remember if I heard of Ricefield first from you both to others, but what a great idea. As I already have the patterns it is just a great reminder of another way to help.

  • Thank you so much for your support Kay and Ann, and so happy that we’re all in this together, doing our best to help as much as we can. It will take many years for the region to fully recover from the storm, and we were already working with some silk growers in the area to possibly develop a silk-based yarn with them. But I think that in the future, as Ricefield hopefully grows, we would love to expand our efforts into the Eastern Visayas region to do whatever we can to help with the recovery efforts there.

  • Very cool, and I’m always glad to see knitters get behind cash donations to charity projects. Too often we want to knit something and send it off to help, but the truth is, cash is better for a lot of reasons.

    • What Erika said! I do charity knitting ONLY when knitting is requested, but contribute financially otherwise. At times, even a couple of dollars can be far more useful than the most perfect handknit.
