The following summarizes your order:
I’m pretty excited about it. My children helped me wind, dye, and name yarn. My friends and customers bought not only yarn, but tickets for a chance to win yarn. Other friends donated advertising banners and auction items (there will be one last item, starting this Thursday, with a fantastic compilation of knitter’s supplies, but we were close enough to the $500 goal that I decided to go ahead and do the donation today). Lots of contributions went into this donation.
The knitter’s basket is a contribution of two sheep and two alpaca. This is how the heifer.org site describes it:
Your gift of a Knitting
Basket represents two llamas and two sheep â four animals famous for
their warm, income-producing wool. From shearing to spinning, weaving
and finally to selling woolen goods at market, the gift of a Knitting
Basket will help struggling families earn extra income to break free from the grip of poverty and hopelessness. Over time, as that gift
multiplies and more animals are passed on to help others in need,
entire communities will be warmed by the precious wool of a Knitting
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who offered their support and was a part of this donation. I’m honored to be a part of this community.
