I'm new here and was one of the happy recipients of Elizabeth's yarn for the March campaign. Elizabeth, I only wish I had a camera so that I could download a picture of what I made! For those of you who don't know, Elizabeth sent enough Brown Sheep superwash wool for me to crochet a hat and tunic-length sweater in luscious shades of Sea Mist, Sea Spray, and Galaxy (lovely green, aqua and dark teal), plus another wool in a coppery tan. The sweater was of a very warm nubbley texture and had decorative patterned stripes all around the collar, sleeves, and hem.
I was so grateful to have had the opportunity to crochet something for an Afghani child. I am disabled and crocheting for charity gives me much happiness, but I have to scrounge for yarn and rarely have the chance to work with wool. What a treat this was!
Now I am inspired to scrounge more rigorously because I am determined to keep contributing to a4A.
Thanks to all of you who put this organization together and keep it running. Yay! We'll change this world yet!
