Fingerless Fetchings

One of my writing groups, The Deadline Dames was asked if we could donate goodies to a raffle for Janis Reams Hudson. Janis is a past president of Romance Writers of America and has some mighty large medical bills facing her right now.

I love donating signed copies of my books to causes like this, so I immediately said I'd be happy to give a copy of MAGIC TO THE BONE and MAGIC IN THE BLOOD. But I wanted to add a little extra something to our basket of books. But what to give?

Knitting! Specifically, A quick, easy knit, they're perfect for those chilly days writing or reading. They rekindled my love for fingerless gloves. I decided to use Berroco Comfort DK since I wasn't sure if the lucky winner would have wool allergies and I wanted something with more bounce than cotton or bamboo.

Please excuse my red knuckles and tired looking hands in the second pic, Lol!

I hope the winner likes them. And since I had so much fun with those, I am now knitting 's Sourwood Mountain next in SWTC bamboo Purplexed.

What are you working on?

Janis was my roommate for most of the years that we served on the board of directors for RWA - I haven't kept up with many people after my time on the board was up...

But, please e-mail and let me know what is going on and what I might be able to do to help her...

my e-mail is nhsarab at yahoo dot com

That's one of my favorite patterns, Barbara.
I'm very sorry to hear about Janis's bills.

nice! (and generous too!)

I am working on a baby blanket, the devil one from Drunk, divorced and covered in cat hair, for a girlfriend of mine who is expecting a lil boy. My friend is a "suicide girl" and i know she will love this blanket!
