I was looking through the latest patterns on Ravelry, partly because I could not face trawling through almost a hundred free shawl patterns, let alone almost 400 pages of shawl patterns and partly because I was killing a few minutes before dinner.
I found the Brandywine Shawl by Rosemary Hill. It's very pretty, although I'm not sure whether I want to start at the pointy end and work up.
What swung me to buy it was the promise to donate $5 of the proceeds of every purchase of $6.50 to médecins sans frontières or Doctors without Borders for their work in Haiti. As of 19/2, she details sending $3500. All US dollars quoted here. How tremendous. So I bought an instant download. I may or may not make it, but I have the choice and my small donation through the designer will add to what she has already sent.
