part in the Cancer Council's Relay for Life in West Australia. There were some very generous donors indeed and tickets were allocated to those who made a
donation through the knitting group. They had
anticipated raising $1000. Instead, a total of over
$4000 was raised. Well done! Those participating
knitted as they did the relay and gave the results of
this knitting to charity too.
This beautiful yarn is 50% cashmere and 50% silk. It's a very vibrant aqua, more so than shows here. DIL's
comment was that I needed to keep a close watch on this, as it just might disappear. I taught her to knit a couple of years ago and she's done a beautiful
handspun scarf for herself. She's really too busy to
absorb herself in knitting, but that didn't stop her
eyeing off this yarn.
I donate to this charity every year and hadn't done so this year yet when I heard about those knitters. I was very happy to make a donation and would have done so without any incentive of prizes. The yarn is from Posh Yarn, dyed in Wales. There are 1300 yards here and
I'm going to let this sit in the back of my mind while I work out what I want to do with it. Thank you again.
On a different note - I've had a great deal of trouble formatting this entry today. Any one else having trouble with blogger? It seems to be related to the breakjump function now introduced. That's the last icon on the
line in the compose page. It should give a small amount of writing and then a jump to the rest of the entry
which is concealed. What I'm getting is words split over two lines which require an actual return to write the
word as a whole. There seem to be many forum entries about this facility and its ability to mess posts
around. Refomatting and changing the justification hasn't helped so I've fixed things manually. (hopefully)
