Casting off The Cold celebrating world wide knit in the public day at the Richmond Hill Village Festival on June 12th. As you can see on the table there are a lot of baby items for sale for the fundraiser, and a kids blanket that we raffled off.
Although the weather was not in any ones favor, rained all day, we were all soaking wet and cold to our bones, we were able to keep up good spirits about every thing.
Liz, Monica, Siobhan and myself were there to support the group, and I cannot thank them enough for being so faithful and taking time off from their families to be there.

We did very well with the raffle, and the WINNER IS JOAN LUND FROM RICHMOND HILL. She was very happy that she won because she has a few grand children. CONGRATULATION JOAN.
Yep, Monica and Siobhan all ready to take the crowd on, no rain yet and every thing looks good.
The crowds came in small pockets so there was time to do some knitting. Monica knitted a baby summer hat from beginning to end, and she said that it was one way to keep her fingers warm.
This is the second time that we have taken part in an outdoor event and it turned out to be a total wash out. I am not sure we will be taking part in events like this again. Hopefully we can find an indoor event that we can participate in. If any one has any suggestions please feel free to email me about it.

Thank you very much ladies for being so supportive and those of you who work so hard getting items done for the fundraiser, many,many thanks again.
