Phase 3: Profit! (a little off topic)

A common refrain between my work husband and me is from South Park:
Phase 1: Steal Underpants
Phase 2: ????
Phase 3: Profit!

For me right now, it's more about raising money for the non-profit my company supports - the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation.  I'm planning a fundraiser for April - probably a silent auction - to go with the company's spring party.  Just one small step on the way to an even bigger undertaking.  My CEO expressed to me her desire to raise $10k by the end of the year so to sponsor a US&R (urban search and rescue) dog.  It's quite an ambitious goal, but one I would like to achieve.  I'm just in search of that elusive Phase 2.  How do I get there from here?  Unfortunately, this question has been keeping me up at night for the past week or so.  I know CEO is depending on me to reach this goal, but with everything else I have to do, I'm not so confident that it will happen.  My first priority is my project, which is about to get B-U-S-Y.  We're moving offices and implementing a reorganization within 4 days next week.  I'm sure my knitting will get much tighter as I deal with that stress.

(see how I made that segue into knitting??? :) )

I finally got pictures of the cool shrug I made out of Black Louet EuroFlax.  It's pretty nice.  I've already worn it to work and got some complements on it - and on my outfit as a whole (I wore it with my favorite little black dress).

I'm still working on the entrelac blanket and the neverending cardigan for my sister (1.5 sleeves to go).  When those are finished, I'll pick up my World Champion sweater and probably knit up the Jabberwocky from last month's fibre girl package.
