Yesterday I received this email from Josie:
Love your blog and the organization Heifer International. I am happy to say that on behalf of the second grade class at Anansi Charter School in Taos, New Mexico, I have donated $100.00 towards a knitting basket. I taught the entire 2nd grade to knit this year (12 boys, 4 girls) and they loved it. Here is the blanket that they knitted and which I assembled. We raffled the blanket to raise money for them to paint a sign for school and to do a ropes course at the end of the year with the balance going for the knitting basket. They were very proud of their accomplishment ( and I was too!) Thanks for this fundraiser–you’re doing good work!
Go ahead. Grab your tissues. I’ll still be here. HONK. SNORT. There. That’s better. Never, in my widlest dreams, did I think I’d get emails like this. THANK YOU JOSIE! THANK YOU KIDS! THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR CONTINUING SUPPORT!
PS – Besides THE WHEEL(!!!!!), we’ve had a couple more prize donations: Susan from Spinning Bunny has donated 16 ounces of hand dyed targhee in any of her colorways – winner’s choice – and 2 skeins of 50% superwash merino 50% tencel sock yarn in any of her colorways – winner’s choice. And Roxy from Roxy Yarns is sending us Serendipity Knitting Needles and Interlacements yarn. THANK YOU SUSAN AND ROXY!
