Trust in Education's Budd is in Afghanistan this week

We're currently knitting for Trust in Education's new girls school. I happened to email their founder Budd MacKenzie today to find out about his next trip to Afghanistan, and -- surprise! -- he emailed me back from Afghanistan, where he's checking on their projects, delivering supplies, and making friends. I thought Budd was still in the East Bay, on the other side of the bridge from me in San Francisco. He's on the Other Side of the World this week.

Budd sent a few photos from the refugee camp where they're serving some of the residents. I am sharing his photos here. The kids are beautiful, and so is Budd.

Please don't download/take these photos from this webpage. They are just for you to see here.

Every schoolgirl everywhere should have a new, cheerful, cozy sweater for their winter semester. TIE's working hard to see that the girls in Afghanistan have an opportunity to catch up on their schooling. We've signed on to make 500 warm wool sweaters for the girls. Have you casted-on yet?

Yes -- I am about half way done with a top down pullover. I have a couple of pair of mittens to stick in the package when I finish. I will post a picture later.

I finished spinning my Shetland wool and will use it to cast on for mittens. Lots of large mittens.
