A wonderful designer and owner of a precious dog

If you haven't guessed, I'm talking about Pamela Wynne.

In knitting world, she's famous for The February Lady Sweater, her adaption of Elizabeth Zimmermann's famous baby knit.

Unknown to some, Pamela's also has quite a few other original designs available as either free downloads or as paid downloads on Ravelry. My favorite is Pickadilly.

Anyway, Pam's sweet baby girl Crush recently broke her leg. Badly. She had to have major surgery. Surgery that is very expensive.

To help raise money for Crush's surgery, Pam created this adorable sweater. You have to click on that link and check it out. It is ADORABLE. Almost as adorable as Crush.

Pam is always looking out for others. She gave us The February Lady Sweater for FREE. That's a huge gift. But Pam does more. Profits from her dog sweater Wurstwärmer go to the Michigan Animal Rescue League. She gave portions of her profit from Pickadilly and Elinor's Mittens to Partners in Health and Doctors Without Borders.

Now it's time to help Pam (and get awesome knit patterns too). Go to Pam's website or to Ravelry and check out her awesome patterns. Buy one. It's that simple. Enjoy!
