Some of the great go to sites mentioned were KnittingHelp.com, LoomKnit.com and Ravelry.

This show was  dedicated to Joel Pennington a great knitter and dad who was recently killed in a traffic accident two weeks ago. Our hearts go out to his wife and daughters as well as the two girls who were in the other vehicle and lost their mother as well. If you are interested in helping with a comfort afghan project for these girls please email me  or if you are in Ravelry you can get details in the Afghans for Joel's Girls group.

So if you want to support her in her efforts please go to this entry on her website: The Purling Sprite  She is giving away a great knit kit, and I tell you what I was chatting with her when she bought that kit and I know she was uber excited about it so it is a big deal.. she is SERIOUS about getting sponsors!!
