First, have you heard? Crochet is the next big thing! If I hear one more person say that to me while I'm crocheting this tee, I'm going to hook their eyeball out. I was talking to Zabet yesterday and she said I should organize the first crochet in public day so that I could just say, you know, crochet is the next big thing!
Second, when coming off Lexapro, you are very alcohol sensitive. Yeah, 1/2 a rum runner last night and I was snockered. That's really unusual for me. Seemed to work well since I finished second in the poker tournament despite the med withdraw.
Third and finally, I am walking in the American Diabetes Association walk for a cure tomorrow. I have raised money and I'm walking for the local college team. This is a big university and we've only raised 2600 bucks combined. That's really rather sad...What could be even sadder you ask? To reach our goal of 3000 bucks, we're having a bake sale...does anyone else see the irony of having a bake sale of non-sugar-free stuff to raise awareness about diabetes? I guess we'll give people type 2 diabetes to help raise awareness for it!
My mom has type 1 diabates also known as juvenille diabetes because it usually manifests when the person is very young. She's had it since she was 14, so she's dealt with this for most of her life. In honor of her, I'm having a little contest. You have a month. I declare June as Knitting Magic Girl's Diabetes Awareness Month! If you comment under this post telling about someone you know who has diabetes, I will enter your name in a drawing. On July 3, after I get back from a vacation, I'll draw a name from the list. Whoever is picked will win...drumroll please...
Three balls of recycled sari silk yarn! They are already wound into center pull balls. Each is approximately 100 grams of silk goodness. It's enough to make a very pretty scarf or some other accent piece. I personally love this silk because it adds a little splash of color to a plain item.
OK, all you have to do is comment here with your name and some way I can know who you are for a drawing such as your blog address or initials or something. You could also comment with your email address too if you want. Just write about someone you know who has diabetes and how this has affected your life or that person's life. Contest begins now!
More prizes now added! Prizes include: 3 balls sari silk, one 200 gram ball lamb's pride worsted in spring garden colorway, beaded stitch markers, 100 dragon shield card sleeves, and a 20 dollar gift card to bath and body works!
