If you want the background on what I’m doing, read this post first.
Okay, let’s see if this grand experiment will work. I’m offering up for sale a shawl I finished on January 16, 2018. It’s a pattern from Russian designer Alla Borisova. It’s a triangular shawl about 70″ at its longest length and 50″ at the sides.
The yarn is Manos del Uruguay Fino, 70% merino wool, 30% silk. Loved working with it. And I love the story of this yarn company.
Some more photos of the shawl, both finished and in progress:
I spent $57 on the yarn and it took my approximately 60 hours to complete. If you’re interested in buying this shawl in exchange for a donation to your favorite nonprofit (minimum $115, please), leave a comment with your bid. Tell me – and everyone else – about the organizations you support and are passionate about and why. One month from now, on February 21, I’ll close the post to future comments and will reach out the winning bidder to arrange details for shipping the shawl and the donation.
I’m going to donate 100% of what is paid, and will have Salesforce (my employer) match the gift.
Update 2/20: Bid of $200 to Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire. You have one week (until 2/27) to place a higher bid!
