A Moment on Tangent...For a Good Cause

Most everyone in blogland and Ravelry-dom is aware that we lost an amazing lady in Momma Monkey. Almost everyone knows she died of the disease I share with her, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus - a killer for many (sob!), a daily health challenge for some of us (grumble! but still, thankfully, not so severe for me - yet).

Now, someone near and dear to my heart has created a tribute to Momma Monkey and is donating to the Lupus Foundation of America in her honor. I happen to know that first of all Roxanne's yarn is scrumptious and gorgeous, having been an original member of her Art Walk Sock Yarn Club since it's inception. And one of her earliest customers to boot.

Roxie is going to donate $5 for every skein of Gigi's colorway purchased to the Lupus Foundation. You can read about it here. I've already bought mine. Go.Buy.Yours.NOW. I know you'll love the yarn, love the colors...

And be helping a wonderful cause in honor of another amazing Lupie at the same time!

(And those of you who are VA Tech fans? Hmm...these colors look awfully familiar! Just sayin')

Thank you for your support Sallee! I hope the little bit I can donate from the sale of yarn will help the research along and everyone (including you) who is fighting this disease today will be victorious over it. Hugs to you too :)

A very good cause, and a very talented indie yarnie!

Oh, how sad! I didn't "know" her and hadn't hear...

I guess I am very ignorant, but I didn't realize that Lupus was so deadly. I knew that it was chronic and could lead to dangerous complications, but I guess I didn't know a lot about it.

I just went over and bought a skein - it's a fabulous colorway, and a wonderful tribute, both!

What a sad story... I got to the party too late to buy any yarn, but am once again impressed by the generosity of knitters.

I have lived with systemic lupus for almost 20 years, but doing fairly well. The yarn is beautiful and makes a wonderful tribute.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
