I know you can be vulnerable, at times, to raging tear-storms on little or no provocation. But I think this link is worth the risk. (Click on ‘Children and Mothers in Afghanistan Receiving Our Gifts’.) It makes me feel even happier about the teetering stacks of afghan squares that surround me. Thanks to everyone who is knitting with us, we are doing a Very Good Thing. I can’t wait to sew up our afghans for Afghans.
I’ve gotten several inquiries about how long we will be accepting squares. When we announced the Afghanalong, we said we would do monthly drawings for free yarn, with the final drawing to be held on August 1. We are going to stick to that, so there are two more months to send in squares. However, we will also do drawings for yarny gifts at the Sew-Up Bees in New York and Nashville, so people can send or bring additional squares until those dates (which we will announce soon, I promise). After all, what would a sew-up party be without a Fabulous Door Prize?
I’m not ruling out a Cake Walk.
