Spring is fundraising time for so many worthy charities and organizations. One which is near and dear to my heart is the Cystic Fibrosis foundation. My friend, Karen, has two children with CF. Each year she and her family participate in the Great Strides walk in Seattle. Next weekend is their walk. To help support her team, Big Ben and the Emmagizers, I am donating one very beautiful, hand dyed skein of Scout’s Swag sock yarn in her Rosalie colorway. How this works: Head on over to the Big Ben and the Emmagizer’s donation page. Make a donation there and then leave a comment here to let me know you’ve done so. On Friday all who’ve contributed will be entered into a random drawing and the winner will receive this luscious prize. And the donations are 100% tax deductable too!
I love you Rosalie, but this is a fabulous honor!
Karl the Koala weathered his second trip through the washing machine with no permanent damage. He’s now a compact version of his former self and he’s been completed with needle felted eyes to render him safe for infants and small children. I’ll definately be making more of these little fellows.
Here is a link to a picture of a wooden version of the sock-in-progress needles holder. My brother, David, is quite the wood worker so maybe he can take a gander at this! Thank you everyone for the links to the shop selling the tin 1800’s repos. I’ve called back and they do have the holders in stock. The person I spoke with wasn’t able to tell me who made them for her. I was hoping to pass some information about them directly on to Scout so she could see about carrying them in her shop too. Happy Mother’s Day!
