Some More Charity Goodness

WWKIPD is approaching rapidly and we have had a good response to the raffle to benefit the SPCA but let's continue to show our 4 legged friends that we support them wholeheartedly!

The donations continue to come in so there is no telling what awesomeness we will be giving away but at $2 a ticket, you can't go wrong. Oh, and did I mention that you don't need to be present to win? Even better!!! Lisa has also donated WWKIPD buttons which you can purchase for $2 that will also go to the SPCA. Great way to raise awareness for our event.

Another charity that we are currently working towards are for the Native American Lakota Sioux residents of South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation which is the poorest spot in the US. You can learn more about it here and here. Later in the year we will be working on helmet liners for the ski patrols as well as hats, scarves and gloves. Right now squares are a great item to be working on, whether they be dishcloths or blocks for assembling into afghans. I finished this one last night using left over hand dyeds and Encore.

This was a really fun free crochet block pattern utilizing some different techniques. Anyone interested in learning how to make it? Come on in and learn something new while you contribute to a marvelous cause!

And please don't forget about Project Linus. One of my all time favorite labors of luv, I will be making several projects for them over the next few months including another version or 2 of petaghans. Stay tuned!
