I just received an e-mail newsletter from Classic Elite Yarns. They are participating in an initiative called Stitch Red. Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States. While one in thirty women will die from breast cancer, one in four will die from heart disease. Please visit the Stitch Red website: http://www.stitchred.com/. By purchasing yarn, patterns and products from the participating partners, you will be supporting the awareness campaign of this group.
Show your support by knitting something red! Classic Elite Yarns is offering a free e-book with 4 beautiful patterns all worked in their red yarns.
I've done the little lace Camellia shawl and it so fun to knit. You can download the e-book patterns here: http://myemail.constantcontact.com/Web-Letter-245-Stitch-Red-eBook--four-free-patterns-from-Classic-Elite-Yarns.html?soid=1100563279288&aid=6CisuHdsUk0
So knit something red as a reminder to take care of yourself and your heart!
