Doggie Scarves are GO!

 I haven't had the official figures yet, but I think my nine doggie scarves earned a tidy sum of around 35000 yen (just over 300 US dollars) for Gundog Rescue CACI thanks to the efforts of the auction team and the fun and friendly bidding. There's a Japanese report with more eye-candy pics at a friend's blog.
 I tried to write in fun comments and it's always a wonderful warm atmosphere, since every penny goes to charity. And so happy to receive the pictures of the lucky bidders wearing their spoils, makes the effort worthwhile: totally knitworthy, as we say in the crafting world. 
 I'm thinking I'll be doing something again next year, perhaps some wee hats? Or fingerless mittens? I got a stash of Noro Kureyon which could serve for some fun items. Meanwhile the grandkids are asking for Pikachu and Anpanman for Christmas. As always these rescued setters bring me nothing but blessings: my knit mojo is back and I can make Granma sweaters for the little humans now too. A huge thank you to all who bid, and particularly the auction team. Now don't feel you missed out! 

There's a new auction every week, so just run along and join the FB group!You are welcome to join and make your bids under the picture of an item you like (only one item per person), deadline is Sunday 20:00 Dean Russo goodies this week, mugs, aprons, go for it!
