I was completely stunned to read on Ravelry this morning that Karrie of KnitPurlGurl has passed away. She had recently started RAP (Random Act of Pattern) Tuesday which totally encouraged me to take some time out and send a little love into the yarny universe each week. She leaves behind a husband and 2 young children. I sent several RAPs this morning before I read about her passing and now I feel as though I need to do a little more. So, everyone who leaves a comment between now and 11pm tomorrow (that will be my EST 11pm) will be entered for a chance to win one of Karrie's The Lady Edith, Crosswords at the Coffee Shop, or Walnut Grove patterns. Winner's choice. I'll choose 10 people using the random number generator. (Be sure to leave your Ravelry id or an email address for me to get in touch or I'll choose another.) Hopefully this little bit will help her family during the holidays. Rest in peace Karrie and God bless your dear little family.

ETA: We had 10 comments so guess what??? Everyone gets a pattern! Ladies, thank you so very much for helping me do a little something for Karrie's family. Drop me a note and let me know which 1 of the 3 patterns above you'd like and I'll send it off to you. :-)

Happy Gobble Day!

Wishing everyone celebrating plenty of family, friends, and good food to be thankful for!
P.S. - Pattern is Owl Puffs (named Owlena by the littlest princess) and while I realize it's not a turkey, it is a bird and since we're having roaster chicken for dinner, well...you get what you get. ;-)
