Kicking it up a Notch

To those who have already made a donation: I am usually able to send out the patterns the day I receive your donation confirmation. If it has been longer than 24 hours since you made a donation and did not receive an email from me with the My Wish Shawl pattern attached, please forward your confirmation email to me at Lynn AT lynnzimm DOT com. If you have left me a comment on the blog regarding a missing pattern I can't respond directly back to you because of the way Blogger handles comments. I have responded in the comments. Thank you again for your donations!

Many of you have found out about this fundraiser through two of my favorite podcasters and wonderful friends, Leslie and Laura - aka The Knit Girllls. I know that Laura's amazing pattern and the opportunity to win a pair of socks hand knit by Leslie have been huge incentives to donate. As our fundraising total has gotten higher, Leslie approached me about making a last minute push, and it was an offer I couldn't resist. Feast your eyes upon these lovelies...

Yep. That's three skeins of Wollmeise! The red skein is Granatapfel in the Twin base and the other two skeins are Orient (an exclusive club colorway!) and Cassis in the 100% SW base.

Just in case you didn't get a good look at the first photo...

So, here's how this could be yours. It's the same criteria as entries for the socks handknit by Leslie. Anyone who makes a donation of $30 or more will have a chance to win this amazing set of three gorgeous skeins of yarn. Every additional $10 donation will get you one more entry ($30=1 entry, $40=2 entries, $50=3 entries and so on). This will be a separate drawing from the drawing for the other incredible prizes.

If you have already donated $30 or more, you're already entered for a chance to win the handknit socks and the Wollmeise. If you have already made a donation, any additional donations will be totaled together before the drawing.

One more beauty shot...

Once again, if you live in the U.S. here's how to make a donation to Make-A-Wish:

Click Here to visit the Denver Oyster donation site.
Select City: Denver
Select Team: Cupcake Mafia
Team Member: Lynn Zimmerman
Then, complete the rest of the form with your donation amount and contact information.
I will receive an email with your donation amount. With a $5 donation, you will receive the My Wish shawl pattern designed by Laura Linneman. I will email you the pattern and enter you in the drawing. For every $10 you donate, you will receive one entry in the prize drawing that will be held at the end of August.

If you live outside of the U.S., you can make your $5 donation for the My Wish pattern on Ravelry. If you would like to make a larger donation, please send me an email at LynnATlynnzimmDOTcom.

Check back later this week. I have another prize to share with you.

Whoops! Just donated twice, but it's totally a worthy cause!
