Are you ready Warren?

Sorry Monkee Maker - Vera's mouth was being a little uncooperative on the day - she was eating toffee and drooling so much that I had trouble with her. (Here she is siting on top of the nearly finished back of Gesta the tank top, smiling in what I hope is a slightly more pleasing way.)

So now then Warren. Are you ready for the grand total? Just in case you don't know, Warren pledged £1 for every finished item I knitted between February and October, providing I didn't buy any yarn. I feel a bit of a cheat really because although I didn't buy any, people kept sending me yarn, keeping my addiction in check.

However, being the gentleman he is, Warren said that was OK. He also said that a pair of socks counts as 2 items and he is quite happy to give £1 for each and every little knitted hat. So here we go (running total):

1. Saartje's Booties - 2
2. Scarf from Emma's yarn - 3
3. Lizard ridge -4
4. Scarlett's hat, bootees and mittens - 9
5. Cable and Rib cardigan - 10
6. Flower hat - 11
7. Aleita Shell - 12
8. Trudie jacket - 13
9. Stripey scarf - 14
10. Little food - 19
11. Stripey socks - 21
12. Diamond patch sock (only 1 so far!) - 22
13. Somoko socks -24
14. Innocent hats - 44

So there we have it - £44 heading off to my chosen charity, St Dunstan's. Thank-you very much Warren. You are very kind.

Well done Michaela! That's a fantastic achievement - and hooray for Warren too for being so generous! Does it mean you are now going to go "stash-happy" buying wool whenever and wherever possible? Lucy x

And I doubled the amount because you've kept us all so entertained during your abstinence.

Well done, you!

Now, everyone else, to keep the charity ball rolling, how about a "Guess the Cost of the Yarn" sweepstake? For £1 per guess: how much did Michaela spend at Ally Pally? Of course, this assumes that (a) Michaela actually knows the answer and (b) she dare post said answer here, given that anyone might read it.

Wow - well done Michaela and well done Warren! On reading Warren's comment I see he's been even more generous!!

Are you up for the sweepstake Michaela? ;)
