Thank you!!

Wow there are some generous people out there!! Lavender Sheep is one of them. She has great yarn and fiber if you are in the market! I also got some donations from some old employers over the weekend. Reese from 8 Women contributed and so did Bruce and Mary, the owners of Bread and Ink Cafe. I have to say that I am proud to have worked at such a great portland institute! They have the new addition of the Waffle Window, which will be two years old in August so not super new! I spend a lot of fun tickets at this place. Mary is a waffle genius! With my off line donations and online donations I think I am close to $260. Half way there people! I think I need to add some non knitting prizes to the basket since I have so many people that are donating that aren't knitters (yet, mhaw ha ha ha!) Lavender sachets are always in need I think, so lets through a set of those in the basket! You can donate here, for every $5 donated your name will be entered to win a fabulous prize. So far there is a skein of hand spun yarn, a skein of fingering weight yarn that I dyed, a circular knitting needle case, lovely lavender sachet, and a newsletter with yarn to accompany the pattern included! Good luck!

I've been super busy making skeins out of yarn on cones, but thankfully it's going pretty fast. Tomorrow my mom is coming over to watch e while I get some dyeing done. I always feel antsy before a big dye day. I get nervous that I won't get enough done. There's not a quota, but I do have a lot to do between now and August 5th. I have a lot more time in July than this month and I need to keep reminding my self that. For now I think I'm going to go turn a heel on my little sample sock.
