Ambitious Knitter Here!

I'm walking 60 miles in the Washington, DC Breast Cancer 3-Day! Will you help me reach my goal?

Well, I've just started my 3Day Breast Cancer walk journey: I signed up. :) I will be training from here on out, and soliciting donations. That sounds naughtier than it is, darn it all. Please check out my Personal Page - I will be keeping a blog over there to update people on my progress. I may just copy & paste to here - it's easier that way, I think.

Here's where I have a fundraising idea that I need help with, from certain talented members of my reading audience: I need a Sock Yarn dyed in a "Breast Cancer Awareness/3Day Walk" colorway. Shades of Pinks, whites, whatever makes YOU think of Breast Cancer awareness, or what you think of, colorwise, when you think of that subject. Anyone up for the challenge?

I need this because I will be auctioning off a pair of socks to be knitted FROM this yarn - to be knitted while I walk the 60 miles. Yes, I knit while I walk if I have my hands free - and a simple sock won't be a problem - probably a pair of Anklets, I think. The proceeds from the auction will go to the Susan G. Komen fund, in their Entirety, and the winner gets the socks to wear proudly. At least, I am praying they'll be something someone would be proud to wear!!This walk will be in October, so I have some time yet. I'm out of ideas for tonite, and I'm hittin' the sack. I look forward to hearing ideas or seeing hits to my 3Day page soon!

*cheers* Go girl, GO!

I love your idea for auctioning off hand knit-while-you-walked socks; if I can help, just holler!
