Opinions needed!

I’ve signed up to walk the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk. It’s a 60-mile walk over 3 days, and this year I’ll be walking in San Diego in November. This is my 3rd year participating and I have to do a bit of fundraising. There will be a number of ways you can help, including a stash sale that I’ll be launching shortly and a pledge drive with prizes that I’ll announce later on.

But first I need to know what to do with some of the pink novelty yarn in my stash.

I have a variety of balls I got in a pink grab bag once. I intended to do something with them for my 2005 3-Day walk but didn’t get around to it. So I still have them. Think I should offer them up in the stash sale? Think I should make boa-like scarves with them and offer those as incentives somehow? Got any other ideas? I’m all ears. Or eyes as the case might be…

    I’m walking in San Diego, too! Have you done the SD walk before? If not, you’ll love it. They take full advantage of ocean views and (blissfully) the breeze. I had the same thoughts as you before last year’s walk, what to knit? Alas, during the actual walking, I wanted no piece of any type of knitting touching any part of my sweating dermis. I ended up hanging my bright pink Hallowig to mark my tent. That helped me find it, but I still am trying to think of something knitterly to add to the experience.

    The only thing I can think of that would be great with the novelty yarn is to knit the boa scarves out of them, and hand them out to some of the cheerers along the route. There are several people cheering and dancing that you see over and over, and I’m sure they’d appreciate it.

    Good luck in your fundraising!

    I think Janelle has a great idea about what to do with the yarn!

    As it’s in aid of breast cancer, you could knit a funky bra to wear over your t-shirt. We do the moonwalk in London where lots of women wear lots of fun bras. I think a bright pink bra might be in keeping…
