Save The Tatas!

Okay, I'm not doing anything too interesting so I'm going to highlight someone who is. Over on Ravelry Rubberneckers, our very own blogless HomesteadMom is off to walk for 3 days at the Philadelphia Breast Cancer 3-day (go ahead, click it, it's harmless!). And if you're a yarnophile, you can even get signed up for some marvelous prizes and I'm just going to copy and paste from the Ravelry page:

The deadline for entering my Bewby Raffle is July 31st, only eight days away! If you have not yet had a chance to do so, please visit my 3-Day page to read about what my mom and I are doing this October, and to make a donation.

Again, here are the terms: For every $5 you donate, your name will be entered one time. So if you donate $25, you will be entered 5 times. $50, ten times. Etc. One prize per person.

And here are the prizes:


KnottyLa, aka La of the JenLa duo has donated a skein of her hand-dyed sock yarn. As her store’s not due to open until later this year, the winner will own exclusive Dizzy Blonde Studios yarn before the rest of the world can. And if that’s not exclusive enough…

The colorway is “Mae”, and it’s a one-off colorway, meaning that it will not be repeated. Only 4 more skeins remain, and then it’s gone forever.

The Dizzy Blonde Studios store is scheduled to open 08/08/08


This skein of Rock Creek Yarn’s Simply Sock Yarn was generously donated by threeteens. The yarn is 100% superwash merino wool, fingering weight, approx. 400 yards. Colorway is Cherry Blossom Just gorgeous!

PRIZES 3,4, & 5

Those of you who have tried to find Yarntini recently know that this yarn is very hard to come by. I am offering these three skeins from my private stash. From top to bottom: Pomtini, Ice Blue, and Twistini. Yarn is 100% superwash merino wool, sport weight, approx. 260 yards per skein. (One skein makes a pair of socks.)


Three skeins of Malabrigo lace weight, color tuareg. This is a very pretty blue, and so soft and silky! 100% baby merino wool, approx, 470 yards/skein.


Last but not least, I am offering a BRAND NEW Ravelry Logo Tote. Great for toting and storing knitting projects! You can read more about this bag at the Ravelry Mini Mart.

So, there's the fun and the good times. I'll be over here. Plying. And chewing all skin and possibly flesh off my lips in concentration.
