Another successful charity event hosted by our local yarn stores!! Nearly 1000 chemo caps were donated (161 by the Black Sheep! Woot! You all ROCK!) and $25,000 and counting for Michigan cancer charities. Our very own Harriet was a 500 club member and was one of the highest fund raisers at the event--Go Harriet!
I think I counted 12 Black Sheep members as marathon participants, and nearly all members showed up to work in the Learn to Knit room--it was packed! I had a hard time finding a seat when I went in!! Judith put a lot of time and energy into making it so successful.
Many got some great deals at the silent auction--and Kim T made us proud by pumping up some bids during the live auction at the end of the night--she even won a beautiful antique Columbian shawl!
Nearly all of our Ravelry buttons are gone--meaning almost 90 people from Ravelry showed up to represent. We captured 40 of them in our photo--see how many you can name!
Here are some pictures for those of you who couldn't make it. . .
Oh. . .and by the way? I'm still the reigning champion of "Super Silly Knitting"! Gotta love that.
So, see you all next year?
