Want a Really Cool Sweater? - Bet

Howdy ho everyone, this is your roving Border Collie, Bet, resting from my exciting week of reporting.

Now that the excitement of the Canadian Challenge is over, and the teams are winding down and recuperating, I thought I'd let everyone know about an exciting opportunity to own a little bit of authentic North Wapiti stuff.

When she's not musher, tending to the Curly Tails, setting off the smoke alarm while cooking, taking wonderful pictures, or blogging, the Musher actually knits!  Who know!?  She's so multi-dimensional.

This year she started this lovely sweater with a cow on the front.
Unfortunately with her busy schedule, she couldn't get the whole thing finished, so she sent it off to Joanne Lee to finish for her.  Joanne has a really nice quilt shop in some place called Maple Valley, Washington.  I'm pretty sure Maple Valley is where they make the tasty goodness syrup that goes on waffles, and therefore a wonderful place to live.  It even smells of waffles, and curly tail furs and I'm pretty sure there's even curly tail fluff weaved into the yarns, so that makes it an even better special thingy.

We guesstimate that its a size XL (human sized, not doggie size), and knitted with some soft knitty baa baa sheepy yarn stuff.

Anyhooo, we'd love for someone to win this unique, one of a kind cow sweater... oh wait, the Musher has just informed me that the proper pronunciation of the beast on the sweater is: COWABOU.

Here's what we're going to do.  There will be a minimum of 100 chances to win this cool sweater.  Helen Handler (who smells like cookies) will collect your donation: $10 per number, and assign you a number.  Once we've filled 100 numbers, we'll make an announcement that we'll be drawing the number on a specific date, to give everyone a chance to get in on the fun, then draw the number.  If your number is drawn, you get the cool sweater!

But wait, there's more!  We'll draw a second number, and the winner of the second number will get these really cool wristie things that the Musher knitted!

But wait, there's even MORE!  Third place will win their choice of a North Wapiti neck gator, or a neck scarf!

So, how do you get in on this cool fund raiser?  Well, its ridiculously simple.

Contact Handler Helen (who smells like cookies)   E-mail her at:

Tell her how many numbers you want ($10 each), and how you'll pay for the numbers:

You can send a check to the Musher (please note that it takes forEVER for the mail to get by Moose to our house:

Checks payable to:
Karen Ramstead
Mail to:

Perryvale, Alberta, Canada
T0G 1T0

Or, you can pay using Paypal.  There's a convenient "add to cart" button over there on the upper right hand side.  Just click it, it'll take you to the paypal page and you just say how many sweater numbers you want ($10 per number), and once we all verify you paid, Helen (snickerdoodle smelling handler) will send you your numbers.

Ok, that's it for now.  I have more important matters to tend to right now because we just got home!!!!!
