Nothing like not updating your site for a while. I digress...

The bike ride started today and 18 riders left from Boston's City Hall Plaza this morning. They are currently on the NE side of Long Island, NY and will be riding to Toms River, NJ tomorrow.

Here are a couple of images of the completed sweater:

The raffle sweater is DONE, DONE, DONE! I'll get pix up as soon as I can.

Tickets for the sweater raffle are $5 each or $20 for 5 (five) tickets. It's a mans large so it will fit a wide variety of people. We also have raffle tickets available for the Harley Davidson pictured below. They're $100 each. We also have hats on hand and they're $15 each. ALL proceeds go to the COPS KIDS program. EMAIL for mailing address info. Because proceeds are going directly to the charity, I cannot accept paypal. Thanks in advance for your support.

This is the Harley Davidson that will be raffled on March 28th. Tickets will be available I believe as of Friday of this week. EMAIL for more information about getting one.

The body of the raffle sweater is done! Here is what it looks like so far:

The color is a bit deeper than shown in the picture. The flash brightened things up a bit. I suppose I could have waited until tomorrow and taken a picture in natural light, but I'll wait and do that when it's completely done. (Hopefully in the next week or so.) Considering it's been just over 3 weeks since I started I think I'm doing pretty good with it.

If you want to purchase a raffle ticket they're going to be $5 each or $20 for five tickets. All proceeds benefit Massachusetts COPS for Kids. Email me for info. Yes, you too can have your very own Sweaterhag sweater.

I heard from Ray that there was talk of WAAF doing a remote broadcast/music there that night, but have not got confirmation of that for sure, so don't hold me to it. ;-)

Hats and T-shirts are still available. They're being sold this weekend again at the Bayside Expo Center at the motorcycle show and other upcoming shows. Be sure to stop by and help the guys out if you're going to the shows. There is also a benefit hockey game coming up and I'll post about it as soon as I get the dates.

The sweater for the raffle has been started! It's a shade of blue called "peacock". It's very gender neutral and passed Ray's approval, and the husband of a good friend of mine. It will likely be a mens size large but that's the beauteous thing about wool sweaters... even on a smaller framed woman they still work nicely. Especially here in the Northeast where we've had tons of snow. I'll post pix as it progresses!
