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!)
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!
