"Knitter in Need" Results!

The results are in and combining our fundraising efforts with those of Green Planet Yarn our donation to the "Knitter in Need" family is....drumroll please...$5,152.00!!!  (and the crowd goes wild!)

We couldn't have done any of this without you and we, along with the Knitter's family, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  We were so pleased with your buying the grab bags (132 sold for those keeping score at home), bidding on the silent auction items, and buying $500 in raffle tickets just from our store!  Awesome is the only word I can muster for these acts of generosity!
