But Wait! There's MORE!

A lovely kind friend, Queen of Purple Yarn, donated this handsome wool scarf with lovely mitered pattern to the etsy shop for my fundraiser. Aren't the colors just amazing? Thanks so much, Queen!

Here are some finished and soon-to-be finished items that will also go into the shop today or this weekend:
A loooong scarf in Takhi Bunny (charcoal, purple, and lilac) that will be so soft and comforting on a cold day.

Here's a finally finished project: the kitty/puppy hat. It's for someone 6-12 months old and is made of very soft washable wool, and the fabric gives nicely for a stretchy, snug fit. It's long in the back to keep a little neck warm.

This is the Lemon Chiffon scarf, and it begs to be snuggled around some young woman's neck--the color is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.

I've been finishing up some other additions as well, so if you haven't made it over, take a gander today--as well if you HAVE seen it but weren't ready to put your cash on the barrelhead.
And it's all for a great cause--Lymphoma Research Foundation funds the study and development of many significant treatments that have been helping to change the outlook for those with Hodgkins and non-Hodgkins lymphomas. For example:

Someone I love.

Exciting Developments in Stacie's Adventures--and a Bonus!

Exciting times! For the past year and a half, since DH's diagnosis with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in April 2008, I have been plotting to attack cancer in my own stitchy way. I have been knitting for a cure.

Today I officially opened up shop at etsy, and I hope you will come and visit. To raise funds for the Lymphoma Research Foundation, I have listed gazillions of knitted items I've been amassing through the past year or so. All of the proceeds from your purchases go straight to LRF. There is one catch--I am open for business just through Dec. 31, 2009.

In my shop, you may well recognize some of my scarves, hats, and other hand-knitted items, as I was casting on yet again, working on them, moaning over them, and finally finishing them. For long-suffering devotees of my knitting blog, I have a special perk--mention "blogspot" in the comments section as you check out, and I will waive your shipping fee.

Here are just a few of the items for sale: 

Watermelon Cuddle scarf, from freshisle fibers' mohair/merino blend (and it is so incredibly soft, you cannot believe it!)

Yak beanie, made of a yak/merino blend from A Verb for Keeping Warm.

Felted purse (a version of the Sophie purse) from a wide variety of wools, including some mohair/wool blend from Be Sweet that I got at Stitches West three years ago.

Hope you can stop by and visit, and remember the blog visitor's perk--free shipping!
