PREORDERS for TEALtember- Ovarian Cancer Awareness

Hi friends!

I am excited to share some news with you. I very happily agreed to design a new colorway in honor of TEALtember- the celebration of Ovarian Cancer Awareness hosted by The High Fiber Diet Podcast (hosted by the wonderful CoggieTM!).

Some facts about ovarian cancer (taken from http://www.cdc.gov):
* causes more deaths than any other female reproductive cancer, but it accounts for only about 3% of all cancers in women
* each year, about 20,000 women in the United States get ovarian cancer
* among women, ovarian cancer is the eighth most common cancer and the fifth leading cause of cancer death, after lung and bronchus, breast, colorectal, and pancreatic cancers

This is a cause that I feel very strongly about, and wanted to do a special colorway to recognize. In lieu of me donating money on behalf of my customers, I have discounted the Journey Sock yarn by $2 per skein and the Panda Sock Roving/Superwash BFL Roving by $1 per braid, and hope that you will donate that amount (plus whatever else you can afford) to one of the following ovarian cancer foundations:
http://www.ovariancancer.org/
http://www.tealtoes.org/

The preorders are for Journey Sock, Panda Sock Roving, and Superwash BFL Roving. They will be available until 8/21.  I will dye these as quickly as I can and get them shipped out on a first come, first served basis. All orders will definitely be shipped by 8/30 so that you can use the yarn to celebrate TEALtember and participate in knitalongs and spinalongs to raise awareness of ovarian cancer. I do not have a preset limit on the number of preorders, but if the number of orders begins to exceed what I can conceivably get dyed within the time frame, I reserve the right to end preorders early.

And now I’m sure you want to see the colorway, right??
