Day Two of the Blitz for the Boobies!

So sorry this is late. My best friend had her baby today so I've basically been at the hospital since around 7:30 pm last night. I'm exhausted, but that's probably nothing compared to how she feels. But there's a new gorgeous baby girl in the world, so all is well! And woo-hoo, after 2 days of boobie blitzin' - one of which I wasn't even around to promote it - I've already raised around $235 for my walk! And I have five days and less than $500 to go when everything gets added in! Just to review there are four, count 'em, four ways you can help me!

  1. Donate
  2. Buy T-Shirts
  3. Buy Patterns
  4. Share w/friends!

I meant to take lots of progress pictures on the shawlette, but honestly all I did today was take pictures of the baby. And the mama. And the big brother and the papa and the sister and oh did I mention the baby? But during all that hurry up and wait time I did make some pretty serious progress on the shawlette. More pics of the design process and details tomorrow - I swear - as soon as I catch up on sleep!

And yes, this prize is a little late, but I won't be drawing for prizes til the end of the week, so you have plenty of time to comment! Today's prize is to make something that breast cancer warriors sometimes desperately need - a nice soft, warm hat. And the nicest, softest yarn I can think is of course Malabrigo. And I just so happen to have a very nifty hat pattern that uses Malabrigo Worsted - the MacDuff Hat. So today's prize is one skein of Malabrigo Worsted in Cactus Flower (of course it's pink!) and one copy of my MacDuff Hat pattern - shown in non-pink colors on my very own man for whom it was designed. Oh and just so you know, my very own man lost his own mother to breast cancer.  So I never met my mother-in-law. Nor did my sons. Just another reason to think pink.

So for today's prize, I will keep the comments light and fluffy. What's your favorite shade of pink? Salmon? Fuchsia? Neon Pink? But you gotta comment if you want to be entered to win. Prize drawings will happen at the end of this fund-raising week!
