Would You Ride 500+ Milesto Fight AIDS?

May 3rd, 2011

I’m a wimp. I’m a runner currently sidelined with shin splints. But ever since I lived in the Bay Area, I’ve watched with great admiration, those thousands of brave souls who spend 7 days cycling from San Francisco to Los Angeles, to raise money in the fight against AIDS.

This year, my dear friend Carin is doing the ride. (Danielle, unfortunately, has recently had to drop out, so I’m moving over the donations to the members of Carin’s team who still need to reach their goals.)

Carin, you may recognize from photos of Slow Curve from last summer. She’s MILT – my incredible lesbian twin – and I adore her.

I’m already donating $100 to her ride, but I’m going to do something else as well, just to help out her team.

So here’s what I’m going to do.

Until May 31, I’m going to match every dollar of these two patterns sold, and donate the total – plus my original $100 – to The Wildcat Team‘s ride.

Think of it as a thank you to Carin for not only introducing me to D, but for modeling in these gorgeous photos for Slow Curve and Creekside.

Creekside – $5 US

Slow Curve – $5 US

Of course, I’m sure any of the Wildcat team members would be more than happy to accept direct donations as well.

You can visit the team Fundraising Page.


I just found out one of my friends will ALSO MATCH the dollar value of these pattern sales. So every $5 will turn into $15 towards the ride AND you get a nice knitting pattern.

What are you waiting for?

    Hi Amy,
    Found this pattern on Ravelry while looking for a project for my cascades eco wool, but also to keep me occupied for a while as I’ll be heading off to Swaziland to work with an HIV/AIDS project for a year. Saw that the $ also goes to an HIV/AIDS charity – so it’s a no-brainer, this tunic was meant to be knit!
