Here at last is the knitted up sample of the Watermelon Man colorway.

I’m really pleased with how this turned out! It  was a challenging dye project, but worthwhile.

In other news, I’m very happy to be part of  Steven Ambrose’s World Aids Day fundraiser, which is tomorrow, December 1.  Here are the details.  Basically, make a donation to the Lansing, Michigan Aids Network tomorrow, send Steven an email with  the details, and you’ll get entered into the drawing for some amazing prizes, including #9, a $50 gift certificate for my yarns and/or spinning fiber.  I’m honored to be in the company of the other great donors.  Last year, Steven raised $4,765 for the Pittsburgh Aids Taskforce, not bad for a first-time, last-minute effort!  This year, he started earlier, got a whole boatload of amazing  prizes, and has momentum built up from last year.  Can we double that this year?
