Let the Fundraising Begin!

So I figured out how to link you to the page for donating to the Take Steps walk. This is a walk to help raise money for Crohn's and Colitis research. Money also goes to community events for people with Crohn's/Colitis. As a little incentive for giving to a good cause there will be some prizes. For every $5 donated your name will be put in the hat and drawn for a prize. Let me peruse the stash of Knitted Wit for a fine prize...oooh, a lovely handspun skein!
This yarn is called confused, merino/silk, 100y. Lovely!

The next prize is a skein of fingering weight yarn or better known as sock yarn! Blue Sky is 4 oz, 400 yards of 100% superwash merino.

There are more prizes to come! For every $5 you donate you're name will be entered once, the more you give the better the odds!

Now on to a little sock summit preview. I started knitting up some samples, according to people on ravelry, they want samples. I started these last night, little socks from Nancy Bush's book Knitting Vintage Socks. I believe she's teaching at Sock Summit! I know there's not much there yet, but the sock is for a little child and I am using size 0. I think a little baby hat would be a great sample. I need to go troll ravelry and see what comes up! I'll add that to the agenda today, along with a photo shoot!! My sister and nephew are going to come play with e today while I shoot some yarn and fiber. My shop is so sad lately, and I have a ton of new fingering yarn to add.

I hope you are having a great memorial day weekend, the weather here in portland could not be any better!
eta the link to donate. DUH!!
