Thanks to all...

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!

Great to hear that Elizabeth's wool was put to such good use. It is amazing how each of our smaller efforts amount to such a large shipment to the kids in Afghanistan. I am always amazed at how much actually gets sent in even when the time is short. Glad to have you with us!

Hi Marcie, welcome! -- your sweaters sound gorgeous! I was also a recipient of Elizabeth's generosity, knitting a vest. I'm watching now for good deals on wool -- hopefully will have enough to share for our next campaign.
