Okay about Suzanne and this "trying to help her brother's significant other and friend, Samantha raise some money to help fight Ovarian Cancer. You can read her story here. By the way, Samantha's climb team is $11.08 short of their $25,000.00 goal. Anyone who goes over there and donates that amount or more, then tells me about it, will be entered into a draw to win the stuff..." why do I care? Well, no one tells you how weird and different everything inside your body stays after you have a baby. I started to get nervous and an ultrasound showed a bit of something in that area during a quick check on my kidneys (they're fine). I gotta tell you, I was pretty freaked out until the second ultrasound showed that it was just fluid built up around one ovary and antibiotics cleared that right up. I can't imagine how I would have felt if it really was Ovarian Cancer. I haven't got $11.08 and I am hoping one of you does and can help them reach that goal. So that said, here's what I will give to the person whose name get drawn from everyone who donates and lets me know about it.
A ball of Bernat Handicrafter a set of six stitch markers (pictured below) and some hardwood 5mm (US 8) 6 3/8" knitting needles
handmade by me. The bead on the top is a wooden bead bought from Walmart, but the rest of the needles are completely natural. They are treated with beeswax from my Uncle's hives and are very smooth. These two needles together are much lighter than one of my plastic 7" needles from Red Heart.
The bead on top.
I'm making these black and white stitch markers this morning. They are plastic beads and are quite light so they won't add weight to your large projects. The rings will fit a 6mm (US 10) knitting needle. They are the kind of ring you can add things to as well (like a key ring) so if you want to, you can add a bigger ring or you can add a clip and use them as purse jewellry too.
