you are my sunshine

last year three irish girls offered a special limited edition colorway, glimpse, in memory of charlie, the baby a fellow ravelry member lost in pregnancy.  this year 3IG is offering a new colorway with a portion of all sales of this colorway going to SHARE. are my sunshine

*New* You Are My Sunshine (Charitable donation made with each skein sold.)

you are my sunshine is described as ...symbolizing the storm of emotions felt by families impacted by the loss of a baby...with deep greys, violets, greens and browns chased with glimpses of sunshine and the return of bluer skies..."  this colorway will be dyed to order with the yarn base of your choice, and the last day to order will be march 15th.

3IG donated $2500 from the sales of glimpse last year, and i pray that even more will be donated this year.  i did my duty and ordered enough for a shawl (hopefully another faraway, so close), and then some.  i ordered only one skein of glimpse last year and i wished i'd ordered more.

i lost two pregnancies during my journey to motherhood and i am touched that 3IG created another special colorway again.  i'm hoping this will be annual tradition.  it's a wonderful way to show support and also spread the message about pregnancy loss.
