Win This Yarn!

Thanks everyone for your generous donations. The Relay was a huge success. The winner has been chosen, and the raffle is closed.

On June 5 & 6 I am participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. We all know people who are battling this horrible disease, and remember others who have lost their battle. Donations from fundraisers such as Relay for Life help support the fight against cancer. Someday there will be a cure. I've set a lofty goal for myself, and came up with an idea. I am going to have a drawing for 3 beautiful skeins of yarn: The
Sanguine Gryphon's Bugga! in Ackmon Blue, Sundara Sock in Wine, and Handmaiden SeaSilk in Trillium. If you would like a chance to win this yarn (a $92 value), for each $10 donation you make on my page, you will get 2 entries into the drawing. If you do make a donation, please leave a comment here to let me know, with a way to contact you should you be the lucky winner. I will pick a winner in a random draw after the Relay. Thank you in advance for helping me achieve my goal, and GOOD LUCK!

I learned of your doing Relay for Life thru Ravelry.

Cancer has claimed some of the most important people in my life. I want to thank you for doing this.

My uncle has just survived a brain tumor operation. He is on his way to recovery.

Nancy, Donation made in honor of Barb Seffens who was a member of our local knit group. She died after a hard fought battle against ovarian cancer a few years ago. Even her last year with us, she still made it to her annual knit in at School House Press in Wisconsin.
