Today I want to acknowledge the loss of one of our own.  A fellow podcaster, knitter and much loved lady in the knitting and Ravelry community - Karrie, also known as KnitPurlGurl (podcast by the same name), passed away suddenly on Monday, November 26th, 2012.  Please join me in sending your thoughts of strength, love and peace to her family. To honour her today, in this closing, I wanted to play a song by Torley on Piano called “Remember Melody”.  To our sweet KnitPurlGurl, this is for you.
