Auction Update

I've finished the sweater! Whew! That is a big relief. I know how fast I can get the longies done, so I'm not too stressed about the deadline now. The kimono sweater pattern is just awesome. One of the best written patterns I've seen. And it has the best pattern support I've seen. All the tutorials for each skill are fantastic and she also offers email support. I used a couple of the tutorials myself. I finally know the correct way to make a button loop! Mine were always a big wonky before with the little knots twisting around the loop. If you are at all interesting in this pattern, go for it. You won't regret it at all! It's available from Sweet Mama Small Sugar.

I did get someone wanting to contribute to the effort in the comments. If anyone else would like to contribute there is a Ravelry Group Here, and the Yahoo group Here. The Yahoo group is the official organizational site for this event. Thank you so much for your generosity!

I have just learned that Colleen passed this morning. Even more my thoughts are with her family.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope that sweater brings in big bucks for Colleen's family, as well it should.
