Thank you to all who helped with Knit Something Good event. As a result, we had:
48 donated items
8 raffle participants
4 raffle winners, 3 of whom were present.
The IWK will be receiving 14 purple baby hats, 1 teddy bear, 31 finger puppets, in addition to those in the picture that were made as samples.
Local businesses demonstrated amazing support, every single person I asked for a donation was very generous and nobody refused. We would like to thank again The Loop, From Ewe to You for the yarn and gift certificates, Just Us! for coffee, tea, and chocolates, the IWK Auxiliary for the cook book, Lucy Neatby and LK Yarns for the patterns that stuffed the gift bags. Please be assured that your gifts went to knitters who are also generous with their yarn and their time. Also, a special thank you to the Lord Nelson Hotel for hosting the event and providing excellent service.
Attending knitters, thank you so much for coming, donating things, and keeping an interesting conversation. By the time we sat together with our knitting, I finally stopped worrying about organizing things and started enjoying the moment.
Crystal, you won a gift bag, please check your email!
Halifax weather? That rain starting at 1 today? That was mean.
