Introducing myself -- again
How nice to have a new blog, and to read about fellow members in many places! I'm Barbara, from Bakersfield, California, and I have been knitting for a4A for almost as long as it has been in existence. Knowing how great the need is, I've been emboldened to try new patterns, new techniques, and many things I'd never have attempted before - so there has been an unintended benefit to me as well as to the children of Afghanistan. I'm always inspired by the commitment our members exhibit, and by the lovely photos of work completed! And I'm looking forward to the new challenge; it's going to be 101 tomorrow, but I'll just crank up the air conditioning and get busy on a blanket.
