This is Crush. Crush recently took a bad fall and broke her leg very badly. Surgery was required to set the bones- expensive surgery. Crush’s owner Pam is fantastic pattern designer (remember Leda?) and she went straight home from the vet hospital and designed a pattern to try to raise the money to cover Crush’s mounting vet bills.
How sweet is this little sweater? It’s called ‘Willie’.
I mean seriously.
I was so lucky to have so much help with my Sweet Lucy’s staggering vet bills back in January that I want to do something to pay it forward. I am going to giveaway one Half Share in Juniper Moon Farm’s 2011 Yarn (or Fiber) CSA. All you have to do is purchase a copy of Flintknit’s Willie. AFTER you’ve purchased the pattern, come back here and leave a comment wishing Crush a speedy recovery. On Monday, one winner will be chosen at random from all the entries.
Cool, right? You get a great pattern, a child you know gets a great sweater, Crush gets her vet bills paid and you are entered to win a half share in our 2011 Yarn CSA (a $100+ value). It’s a win-win-win-might win situation and you can get in on it for 6 lousy bucks. Don’t knit or think the pattern is too advanced for you? Buy the pattern anyway and consider it a $6 raffle ticket. Or- better yet- give the pattern away to a friend.
On entry per person, please. Entries will close on Monday, May 3rd. Extra karma points for tweeting, posting on facebook and rav. The winner will be announced here on the blog and will have 24 hours to claim his/her prize. In the event that the prize is unclaimed, another winner will be chosen at random.
