You haven’t seen generosity until you’ve seen the gigantic, amazing, wonderful, fantastic, impressive, beautiful sock yarn blanket that Deb (a.k.a. discoknits) is giving away. Yes, you heard correctly: giving away.
Deb is knitting a Bee Keeper’s Quilt entirely out of Socks That Rock yarn, which will go to one lucky winner chosen from among those who donate at least $5 to her cause. Deb is fundraising and running a marathon in honor of her late brother and in support of children’s charities in the US and the UK. She has already knit over 350 hexipuffs, and look how gorgeous they are!
You can donate to support the US children’s charity here. As you can see, she’s already met her goal (woohoo, go Deb!) but more never hurt anybody. Plus wouldn’t it be wonderful to win that gorgeous quilt? I’m still totally gobsmacked at the knitter’s propensity to give. It really is inspiring.
OH YEAH, THAT BLOG-WARMING GIVEAWAY! Want to know who won?
- Jeremie will be receiving the Zen String Loopy Legends
- Audrey will be receiving the Fiesta La Boheme
- Asteride will be receiving the Sereknity Knits Perfect Sock
- Kristin will be receiving the Fibranatura Oak
- Lisa will be receiving the The Verdant Gryphon Bugga
I’ve contacted the winners and will be mailing the yarn out on Monday. Thanks so much to all who commented and liked and followed, etc. It was great to hear from everybody and find some new blogs to follow, myself!
What’s been inspiring you lately?
Well, that inspired me. Maybe once I graduate I will do something similar for Relay. Such a great idea 🙂
Wow, that is amazing, what a special quilt that’s going to be.
Oh wow. That is indeed a quilt that rocks. I think I would have a tough time giving something like that away. It’s just pretty…. and so much work!
