I Can't Believe I'm Giving This Away

I have finished spinning two of the skeins of yarn for my giveaway. I'm very excited that this is helping raise money so some very deserving kids get to have their wishes come true by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. But as I finished one of the skeins, I realized how much I'm committed to blowing away our $1,500 goal.

I love this skein.


Photos do not do it justice. It is black BFL dyed by Gale's Art in my favorite, purple, green and teal. It just glows! This will make a gorgeous shawl or super soft socks. At least I know where I can get more fiber in this colorway.

I also finished another skein from the South African Fine dyed by Spunky Eclectic. I think this would make a cute baby sweater. So soft and snuggly.


I also wanted to share with you the photos of the project bag Sharon donated for the prize drawing.


I love the fabric!


You can see the rest of the prizes by clicking here.

To donate, click here, then select Denver, Team Cupcake Mafia, and Team Member Lynn Zimmerman. Remember, for every $5 you donate by midnight on July 31, you'll receive one entry in the drawing for the awesome prizes, except for the hand knit socks. For the socks, donate $25 for your first entry, and then you'll receive an additional entry for every $5 after that.

Team Cupcake Mafia thanks you!


We did a recon mission for the race on Sunday and came across this incredible "yarn bombing" in downtown Denver. It was the perfect colorful background for a photo of a team of knitters.
