A heartfelt “thank you” to those of you who generously donated to my Longest Day efforts to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s research! The official longest day was June 21, but I did my part on June 19 by casting on a sock at 5:32am and knitting until the sun set at 8:31pm. After 15 hours of knitting, I had completed one sock and most of the leg of the second sock. Yes, I will make the pattern available.
My fingers are more than a little sore, but I’m not complaining. I knitted at my local yarn shop Shuttles, Spindles and Skeins for most of the day and enjoyed meeting and knitting with people there.
My personal goal was $1,000 and my team goal was $2400 for a total of $3,400. I’m beyond thrilled to announce that your generosity blew past my goals and the totals were $2,526 for my personal page and $3181 for my team page for a grand total of $5,707!
I am truly honored to have a part in helping find an end to this horrible disease.
