Hi, I'd like to introduce myself. I am a Labor and Delivery nurse in Manhattan and I live in New Jersey.  I've  spent most of my career working with women and children.  I have been following this blog for some time but I have never posted before.   In my spare time I love to spin, and I work mostly with wool and alpaca.  In 2008,  my son was deployed to Afghanistan and he talked about the bitter cold and the need for warm clothing for the children, so aforA seemed like a perfect match for me.  I have been happily knitting for the cause ever since.  I've been blown away by the beauty and the creativity of some of the items created by the contributors to this blog.  You inspire me!

Thank you for sharing your own connection to Afghan children, Kathy. It is a concrete reminder that every child we are knitting for matters. I look forward to seeing your handspun and handknit work here.

Glad to know your son is home safe. You will be inspired by the creativity here. No matter what I think I have next for my needles, something I see here gets me excited & I CO for that instead.

Welcome, Kathy. I, too, am glad your son is home safe. Mine is as well. He fought in Iraq. Knitting for a for A is, in part, my way of giving thanks for his safety. (It's also something very close to my heart). I wish I could knit as fast as you others, though. I've only been able to contribute 2 pairs of socks so far, for this campaign.
