Doing some charity stuff

Back to our usual level of overcommitment, I am participating in the Cancer Council's Relay for Life with our group 'Knitters for a Cure', commonly known as K-FAC!  We have a goal to raise $3000 and are currently over 80% towards our total.  Raffle prizes are available to like-minded knitters who want to donate AND expand their non-stash.*
This coming weekend - October 24 and 25 from 3pm to 3pm - our group will walk around Joondalup Arena in various directions while knitting squares for a blanket that will be auctioned off at the end of the relay.  We're hoping that we won't spend too much time falling over while doing this but you never know.  If you're in the area, please come down and support us / take pictures of how silly we look / laugh a lot.  If you're not in the area, how about donating to cancer research?

*non-stash - a term used by knitters to describe the insulation they accumulate for projects.  Others may use the term stash however:
  • If a project was intended = non-stash
  • Bought as a gift or to make a gift = non-stash
  • Sock yarn always = non-stash
  • Bought from someone else's stash (non-stash) = non-stash
So there's no such thing as stash!!
