Give a Little Bit

I spent my Labor Day laboring. No more kids, I was on a bicycle. Yesterday I rode 10 miles at an average speed of 12MPH and it was only my first day. First day of what? Training for the big ride.

In February I'll be riding 25 miles in the Tour de Cure. This ride raises money for the American Diabetes Association which is dear to my very diabetic heart. Millions of people are affected by diabetes in the US, those with the disease and their families. A cure is not a distant hope anymore and I'm excited to do my heart to make it happen sooner.

Want to help out?? Click on the Tour de Cure button over there on the left and make a donation. For every $10 you donate, you'll get an entry in a raffle for a sock-knitting kit. The winner will receive a skein of Trekking XXL in colorway #134 plus a set of 5 size#2 double-pointed needles.


Today was a great mail day! I received my Summer Sock Party package!! It's great!!! My partner is great!!!! The sock she designed for me fits like a dream! And Cascade Fixation may be my new favorite sock yarn. All my little goodies are adorable too. Thanks secret friend!!

Hey Megan,

I'm so glad (relieved, too) that the sock fits :) I sent you a little card that has my reveal info (it's what I forgot to put in the pacakge). You should be able to finish up the mate for that sock in a day.
