We have a winner!

Congratulations to Sherry DW of Northern Minnesota!

I have it on good authority that the Traveling Shawl has been packaged up, along with the accompanying journal and will be mailed to Sherry this week!

Thank you to all of the knitters across the country who worked on the project and to all of the people who donated money to Komen for the Cure and to the people who purchased copies of the pattern.

Sherry has graciously agreed to add photos and a little bit of "her journey" to the Traveling Shawl Blog very soon! Stay tuned to learned about Sherry and her plans for the Traveling Shawl!

Upcoming Announcement

This morning a winner of the Traveling Shawl was chosen through use of the Random Generator. An email has been sent to our winner and her name will be announced shortly.

On behalf of Kay, myself, and all of the Traveling Shawl knitters - Thank You to everyone who participated via donations, knitting, pattern purchases and publicity. It has been an emotional journal for many of us. Kay and I are both a little surprised to find it suddenly over.

We hope you continue to support Komen for the Cure and Breast Cancer Awareness. Run a race, support a Komen team - and please perform self examinations and get mammograms.
