Doctors without Borders

Last fall we introduced a colorway benefiting the non-profit organization Doctors without Borders. 50% of every sale of this colorway is donated to the organization to help them provide medical aid to suffering people in every corner of the world. At the end of every quarter, we add up all the sales and send in the donation. This part quarter (ending in March) we raised $415. I am impressed! That is a significant amount of money--enough to really do some good!! Sales of the colorway have slowed down, though, so I'm not sure if we will be able to raise as much this coming quarter. If you want to do your part, you can order any of our yarns or roving in the Doctors without Borders colorway or donate directly to the organization through their website.

ETA: to see how this colorway looks knit up, check out Leslie's sock on her blog!

Very cool!

I'm knitting with it now, I bought it in tinsel toes. I love it, I've got one sock done and most of the toe on the second (pics are on my blog, in the post about my hair, lol!)
