a way with words

yarn_line_art_adam_lowe_Pink_Ball_of_YarnOne of my favorite blogs is the Yarn Harlot. The author, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, is not only a brilliant knitter, but is also a brilliant writer. The past few years she has participated in the Friends for Life Bike Rally, a six-day ride from Toronto to Montreal that raises funds to support people living with HIV/AIDS.

Stephanie’s account of the 2014 event (These words are like birds) puts you out on the course with team Psyclopaths, and celebrates perseverance in the face of adversity for a greater good. Stephanie herself raised over $50,000 and her team surpassed $150,000. Well said and well done.
