let's talk about the prize first, shall we? just for hating cancer you will have the chance to win these three gorgeous skeins of malabrigo 100% merino wool yarn.
if you have not knit with malabrigo before let me be the first to tell you - it is a complete delight. ever wondered what knitting with a cloud from heaven would feel like? i'll tell you - it feels like malabrigo.
now on to the nitty-gritty of how do i win this fantastic yarn...
1. make a donation
for every $5 you donate to my 3-day fundraising page you will get on chance to win. so for example, if you were to donate $20 you would get four chances to win, a donation of $25 would get you five chances and so on and so forth. the more you donate, the more chances you'll have of winning.
(when your making your donation please let me know in the "personal note to the participant" box that you're entering the yarny contest.)
