Ride2Survive Raffle -- more prizes!

Let me tell you about my friend Ro, who lives in Georgia. I met her a few years ago in a swap group on Ravelry, and she's one of the nicest people I've never met in person. She's witty, fun and raunchy, and she's incredibly generous, too.

Want some proof of her generosity?

She's donated three more gorgeous prizes to our raffle to help our husbands fundraise for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Two skeins of Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop -- handspun yarn, in the colourway Spirit in the Sky.

A skein of Fiberphile Hand-dyed Merino/Cashmere/Nylon yarn in the colourway Willow 1.

One Anne Hanson Bee Fields shawl kit (link goes to the Knitspot website where you can see a finished shawl) which includes the pattern and a skein of Wooly Wonka Fibers Merino Laceweight yarn, in the colourway Tupelo Gold. Ro describes it as "a very soft, light green, semisolid, 2 ply laceweight merino."

Thank you so much, Ro -- these are gorgeous additions to the prize pool!

These will go into the raffle draw that we announced earlier this week. It's just $5 for an entry, and don't forget, if you donate $25, you also get entered to win quilts and hand-knit socks.

And if you'd like to help us out, please do spread the word about this raffle!
