Just a place where I can sit and write my thoughts on my newest passion. . . . . knitting. Hopefully, I will better document my progress throughout knitting and get in touch with others as obsessed as I am!

Free bead kit anyone?

Just take a moment and head on over to Make the connection. You can order a free bead kit that will make TWO bracelets and with each order, Merck pharmaceuticals will donate $1 for Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation for cervical cancer.

Unfortunately, My DH and I have 4 friends from the ages of 35-40 that have all been stricken with cervical, vaginal and uterine cancer. All derived from HPV. That's WAY too young to have to deal with the thought of losing such an important part of a woman's body. Luckily they have all found their cancers with routine screening but, a couple are still not out of the woods.

Don't like ordering stuff online? There is also a 1-800 number at the site that you can use.

What's to lose? You and a friend get a free bracelet and Merck donates towards cervical cancer research. It's a win-win.
