Blanket on the road -- a success!

Holly, Jee and I took the blanket around campus yesterday afternoon to most of the branch libraries. The staff at all the locations were very interested and asked lots of questions about how the blanket came to be. We sold 185 tickets!! That doesn't include what Loretta and others have sold. Many thanks to Dennis T. for suggesting a raffle instead of the silent auction.

Charity blanket construction photos

Sorry it took a while to figure out how to get the photos from my phone to the laptop so I could send them by blog. 

Selling like "Hotscakes"

Hey guys,
As of this moment (1:18 pm) we have sold 103 tickets for a total of, yes you guessed it ... $103. This is fantastic. Audrey and Carol each have 20 tickets to sell and tomorrow when the afghan goes walk-about to the branches David will take tickets to sell to all the staff who are gobsmocked by our talents. Anyway, just wanted y'all to know where we stand right now.

Knitting for Nutrition

Hey David and all the other cool librarians I see each Thursday:

I have a friend who knows I knit. She put me onto this organization who is trying to train women  in Africa about good nutrition, but is luring them to the training with the promise of knitted booties....

I know we just finished the phenomenal afghan...and yes, I am still good for a Special Olympics scarf (as soon as Marjie is done with her yarn...) But I thought this looked like a good option for the group as well.

The link with the story and the bootie counter is:  The story is compelling. The pattern looks easy.  Also, the booties are small enough that it might be a good way to use up extra stashed you have room for more, of course.

I will try the pattern they included on the site and see if I can have it ready for the next meeting on Thursday, let you all see what you think...

Check it out!
