Almost Overwhelming!

This has been such an amazing, crazy week! From birthing an idea to seeing it come to pass - KNIT RED Knit Along is a success and I thank you for that! Kitt of Kittnknit has been my right arm in this...creating all the great buttons and tags. The idea for the tags was the brainchild of Kary of www.theknottysheep.com and she was good enough to remind me:

What?? No red in your stash? ... Then donate some cash!

WomenHeart
818 18th Street, NW, Suite 230
Washington, DC 20006

(It's tax deductible, you know!) (Thanks, Kary!)

What do you do with a tag, you say? Well, the tags are for printing out and attaching to your completed red item for giving away, reminding the recipient of the reason you made it, and suggesting they pick up needles to join us. Or perhaps, you know a knitter you think would like to join us in this...why not attach a sticker to a ball of red yarn to help them get started? All it takes is some fun fur and you're on your way...a neat scarf in red to make some woman you know understand that heart disease is her number one killer!

Do take a moment to check out NHBLI and WomenHeart at their websites. These are prime spots to learn all about this disease and what you can do to reduce your risk.
Bless Your Heart!

make that you "left arm" you've done all the work for this great campaign!
Let's hope women become more aware of their bodies as a whole!

Hi, KnitNana!
I just joined the yahoogroup yesterday, just haven't had the chance to intro myself to the group and tell what RED project(s) I'll be working on.. I'll also get a button up on my blog SOON... just very busy (Helping our mutual friend, Kitt, too with KBK while she rests)
Anyway, I saw that you had visited my blog, and thought I'd acknowledge your vist!
Hugs,
Noreen

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
