Goodbye September

I can hardly believe that September is over but ... it is! With the turning of yet another page in the calendar, I'm so happy to announce the winner of the September prize for the Miranda Hat charity KAL over on the Project: Stash KAL group on Ravelry.

The winner is ... Renee and you should see the gorgeous Miranda Hats she knit over the course of the summer (she even knit several while on the beach)!  Since this KAL was a true labor of love as the hats are being donated to everyone's charities of choice, I wanted the last monthly prize to reflect that same sentiment.

Renee's prize is a beautiful shawl pattern by Carina Spencer called Far Away, So Close.  In Carina's own words, This shawl was originally designed as a gift to comfort a friend during a time of much grief. In honor of Infant Loss Awareness Month, each October all proceeds from the sale of this pattern for the month are donated to charities that offer support and guidance to families suffering the loss of a child.
