Human toll

This is the title of an entry in a blog that is advertised as having to do with Accuweather's redesign. It is more interesting than that. Carl links to a CNN transcript and suggests one scroll down to Jeanne Meserve's part. Since I am (for several reasons, not least a .2 mile driveway) tv-less, I am getting my news from the radio and the Net and and the section of transcription which Carl refers is quite horrifying enough.

I am most of the way through the Knitty Tychus hat, for Dulaan, and wondering if I should start making something to raffle for the Red Cross. Anyone have any ideas, any effort already started?

The "Tychus" pattern, btw will now be high on my list for beginner knitters (or for mindless knitting), only not in acrylic, of course (maybe I should put'fiber snob' into my profile?). I am puzzled as to why she doesn't slip the high end of each row to make it pointier and perhaps more solid, and the simple, simple design will make a fine place to use scraps, I mean play with colors. I mean both, really.

Thanks for the mention Laura! Before this week I had an opinion of blogging that was very different; i.e. it was generally "easy" and a "good time". But having written through this hurricane (and not even being anywhere near it) I've come to realize that it's not always so simple. There are a lot of stories out there that are just "soul shaking," and many more to come, I'm sure.
