Last night I attended a fundraiser for Ovarian Cancer. Lucky for me the two girls organizing it are addicted to two of things I’m addicted to: rock climbing and knitting.
Public Service Announcement for the Hera Foundation
Knit With in Philadelphia, PA donated $3000 worth of yarn. They did a silent auction for most and raffled the rest of it off. I walked out of Fergie’s Pub with thirty three (yes, 33) balls of cashmere yarn: 19 black and 14 baby blue.
I haven’t been able to find much information on the web about this yarn – here’s what I know from the label:
Brand: La Lana del Cigno Nero – “The wool of the black swan” – Biella, Made in Italy
Fiber Content: 85% Cashmere, 15% pure virgin wool
Needle Size: 2.5 -3
Other stuff: “GR. 20 COND” – it says that on the label, dunno what it means
