WOW!! Only two days after I announce I am going to have a contest I am here to start the contest!

It's pretty simple actually. See the link to the left of this that says "My ADA page"? If you follow that link and make at least a $5 donation to support my walk against diabetes between now and October 3, 2008 (the walk is October 4) and leave me a comment letting me know that you donated I will enter you in a drawing for this lovely skein of sock yarn.

The yarn is one skein of 100% superwash merino wool hand-dyed by Tuscan Grove. It is in the colorway Venetian Glass and contains approximately 440 yards/110 grams.

On my monitor the colors look pretty accurate, but just in case the yarn is brightly multi-colored with pink, light blue, greens and some yellow/oranges.

If you have any questions please leave a comment.

Hi Mary - I wish I would've seen this contest earlier! This is such a worthy cause. My mother, father, and brother are all diabetics.

We're proud to have been chosen as the "prize yarn" (and, it's a good choice too, as it's one of our more popular colors)!

Let us know how the walk went!
