Today, there will be no Christmas progress update. Instead I would like to say a few words to honor an incredible person who left us all very suddenly. Karrie (aka KnitPurlGurl) was an amazing person who encouraged and uplifted people every day. Though I only knew her online through plurk, ravelry and her podcast, she had become a dear friend that I was looking forward to meeting in person at next year’s Rhinebeck.
Her passing was sudden and has shocked our knitting community. But on RAP (Random Act of Patterns) Tuesday, we have come together to carry on her wonderful spirit, gifting each other her patterns and creating a KAL to knit her Crosswords at the Coffee Shop shawl. She is loved by so many and will forever be missed; we hold her family in our thoughts and prayers.
This is just one more reminder to make every day count and to truly cherish those around us.
