A little chance for charity knitters

Ellen, Naomi, and I are participating in Cloths for Katrina knitting project. Naomi is on sabbatical at the moment, working on creating more havoc at airport scanning devices as she becomes more bionic.

Anyway, we would like to see what other folks are knitting for charity. Some of you are Cloths for Katrina Knitters, while others will be knitting for other organizations (I found this link for charity knitting, which includes some of the many organizations that accept donations).

Here is what we would like for you to do to participate in our drawing:

  • Post a picture of your completed project on your blog
  • Post the charity or organization to which you are giving the project
  • Share with others that we are doing this and link back to our site
  • Post a comment in the comment section so we can go to your site and enjoy what you are doing!

This is what we have in return. We will have a drawing on Nov. 1 - All Saints' Day for all of you saints out there for the work you do. We will draw for the following yarn:

and for those of you interested in Lace Knitting, perhaps this will entice you:
It's 70% Super Kid Mohair 25% nylon 5% wool. And scruptious.
This is some of my BEST stash, and I had intended to knit the Kiri Shawl, but that was not to be. So, I "branched" out into a smaller project and knitted this with the above yarn:

Branching Out is a lace scarf from Knitty.com. (Scarf is not part of drawing - it's what I knit with the yarn in the drawing.) It was my first attempt at lace knitting and I am looking forward to it again. This lace scarf is now in Ireland in her new home. A transplanted Floridian, she and her family decided to move to husband's stomping grounds. If I get a picture of it in that green country, I will post. However, to be eligible for this drawing, you must post your charity knitting on your blog and let us know!

Ellen, Naomi, and I are excited about this, because we know the good work that knitters do!
Look forward to seeing the goodies! Bring 'em on!

Plays with pointy things bloggers....

Cathy, how fun of you! I am the first person to get to comment, but I am sure not the last... At the bottom of the linked post, you will find a photo of my box of washcloths for Cloths for Katrina:

Check out our controversial song. It's like Eminem and Fiona Apple wrote about Hurricane Katrina with a razor blade on the apathetic arms of America. Is She too numb to notice? You can't pick up the cd at your local Mega-Mart. This song is to mainstream radio what blogs are to mainstream media. Few will hear it and even fewer will understand it.
