Pink Power Yarn

In Breast Cancer Awareness on October 8, 2006 at 10:27 am

I am happy to team up with Linday of Playinghooki for the fight against breast cancer and to promote breast cancer awareness. I have posted 5 handdyed fingering weight superwash merino sock yarns in my Etsy store today and 100% of the proceeds will go toward the cause. Please, if you’d like to donate, visit! I managed to get a few variations in pink and call them all Pink Power! Lindsay also has some really cute pink coloured accessories for knitting too that you should check out!

UPDATE: WOW! You guys are fab! The yarns are all sold out now…thank you, thank you, thank you!! Here’s a summary of the contribution we’ve done so far from Zen Yarn Garden & Playinghooki for the Pink Power yarn purchases:

  1. I’m happy to be able to purchase this yarn from you and support the cause.

  2. Beautiful!

    BTW, October is ALSO Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. Maybe you could do a yarn in soft pink & baby blue….

  3. For an interesting twist on the topic of the “pinking” of breast cancer awareness, please see the link on my website, http://www.honestmedicine.typepad.com, to the article “Welcome to Cancerland: A Mammogram Leads to a Cult of Pink Kitsch” by Barbara Ehrenreich. (You can access the article by going to the left side of my site, under “articles of importance.”)

    This article will give you a different perspective on the topic! It is a classic.
