Belated Thanks!

In my picture taking flurry, I also finally took a picture of this yarn (Lorna's Laces in seaside), which Greeley sent as a thank you when I contributed to her fundraising ride. She's riding in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure on July 14 and 15. My grandma had diabetes, but was very fortunate in that she was able to manage it successfully. She passed away (from other causes) before I was old enough to really understand what a chronic illness meant--I just thought it was really cool that she always had a package of crackers in her purse in case she needed a snack for her blood sugar.

And I won one of the two prizes from Debby, Chris and spokescat Charlie, for the last month of their fundraising for Get Your Guts In Gear, which raises money for Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis. I picked lacewieght yarn from Live2Knit, because clearly I was running low on yarn!

So, thanks! (I think they're both still accepting donations, so send money! Kevin did a 1/2 Ironman last summer for Team in Training, and asking for donations was much harder than we expected, even for the most worthwhile cause.)

Thank you once again for supporting our causes! I hope that you enjoy the lace yarn. I have some of Katie's sock yarn in Monet, and I can't wait to knit it up. I just knit too slowly for all the pretty yarn there is!!

I know what you mean. I told you I'm going the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and I just don't know what to say when asking for donationgs. :(
