Recently I faced the difficult question: What do you do for the milestone birthday of someone who’s worth their weight in precious gems? I knew my aunt Pearl was hoping for knitted socks, but I wanted to do something more for the person who has sheltered, fed, and supported me in so many ways. I designed Pearl’s Diamond Socks in her name, both to commemorate her birthday and to support a cause important to us.
Pearl has been fighting leukemia for a long time, and this knitting pattern will benefit an organization that does that same. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society provides research funding and patient support to those people fighting blood cancers in labs or in daily life. This organization puts donations to good use, and I will donate the proceeds from Pearl’s Diamond Socks in honor of my aunt Pearl in the hopes of raising spirits, awareness, and medical knowledge for people fighting these diseases.
I asking for a $5 dollar donation to this important cause. As a thank-you for your support, I am offering the Pearl’s Diamond Socks pattern for your enjoyment. It’s a sport-weight sock worked toe-up on two circular needles, and you can have the satisfied feeling of supporting a good cause along with the warmth and coziness of new knitted socks. Or you could go the extra mile and donate the socks to the charity of your choice, doubling the amount of good you are doing with your handcrafting skills and time.
