Charity always pays

STR Fairgrounds
Originally uploaded by knitswithasilentk.
I knitted 3 beanies for preemies and mailed them to Julie, and she picked me to win the STR!

This colorway (Fairgrounds) is so pretty- lots of purples with green/blue and orange. It just joyfully cries "spring". Julie also included a cool notepad which has a cover which closes, like a matchbook, and a beautiful card. And I included the envelope in the photo, because she taped pictures of flowers on it and used lots of Hershey's Kiss love stamps. It greeted me when I got home from a long day of work followed by a long choir practice. I literally jumped up and down!

Thank you so much, Julie! But really - doing charitable works always gives to the giver, whether or not it results in stash enhancement!

I love winning no matter what the prize ... but STR's are one of the best kind of prizes. Sweeten's the charity knitting doesn't it?
