Breast Cancer Month and Halloween

How did this happen - pink and orange just do not mix!!!

So one day I wear pink and then the next day I wear black and orange - this is playing havoc with my closet and trying to keep the laundry caught up with my pink and orange clothes!!!

Our local yarn shop Creative Yarns does a big breast cancer campaign. The shop hands out small bags of yarn to those who wish to knit or crochet a scarf. My bag contained enough yarn for me to make two scarves - one crocheted and one knitted.

They also set aside a Friday evening and all day Saturday for "Knit-a-Tit". Which is knitting a temporary prosthesis (sp?). Below is my contribution. Here is only a portion of what the shop has received. As of yesterday, they had over 134 knitted and crocheted that were donated
This is such a wonderful cause and community event, they also raise money for Breast Cancer.Please drop by the Creative Yarns website - they are a wonderful group of gals and the shop is just yummy with great fibers.

Have you had your Mammogram this year??? I went yesterday. Do take care of yourself and your body.

Thank you for visiting, I appreciate your dropping in --------- Roberta

What a great idea! Good for you for participating too. I get my mammogram every spring without fail. :D

Nice of you to contribute Roberta. I thought of you last week while in Michael's. They had a display of all kinds of pink yarns for Breast Cancer Month.

I haven't had one yet this year.........but only because I'm not old enough yet for my insurance company to pay for it. I'm good to go starting next year though!!! :)
