Free Yarn

Did that get your attention? Good! Read on...

When I first looked at the Stitches East group on Ravelry and read about Halos of Hope I knew it was something I really wanted to get behind. Cancer touches all of us at some point in time whether it be ourselves, a family member, or dear friend who is diagnosed. We all know someone who has faught the fight.

HOH will be at Stitches East and we've been busy at the store working on hats to donate there. If you'd like to contribute we'd love to take your hat(s) with us! Looking for a pattern? There's an entire library on Ravelry. Go check it out!

What about the free yarn? One of the biggest expenses HOH has is the cost of shipping all the hats to the treatment centers they donate to. In order to help raise funds, HOH is accepting $10 donations in exchange for a vote to have one of the XRX guys shaved on the marketplace floor in just less than 2 weeks time! If you make a $10 donation and vote to shave Drew the Crochet Dude before this Friday, 10/5/12 I'll enter you to win a skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light. Yummy!!! It's the same yarn I'm using to knit my Sockhead Hat. I know you won't be disappointed. You can email me a copy of your receipt or pm it to me on Ravelry. I'm kerryknits. :-)
