Your support has been overwhelming! More than once I have been moved to tears by your generosity. Check the Give A Little blog to see what prizes have been donated and how much money is raised. We are off to a phenomenal start! Each week we'll give away a prize and there will also be an auction, for some of the most wonderful things you have ever seen, in the near future, too. You grrls, and guys, are awesome!!
Last year when Sally Melville came here to teach she wore a pair of her gauntlets. We all wanted a pair as she made them look so cool. There is no reason why I didn't knit them right away, except to say I might have been in a sock rut. Now my sock drawer is full and it's time to try something else. While I will never give up sock knitting, this was a nice diversion and it will not be my last pair. They will be the perfect thing to keep my wrists warm during the chilly months of winter.
