Dear All the Mamas
Dear All the Mamas; Knitting for the Orphans of Kazakhstan is available for a donation of $15.95 to the Motherless Child Foundation through Ravelry. ALL proceeds flow directly to this 501(C)(3) nonprofit public charity to help fund our work for the children in orphanages in Kazakhstan.
Not only does this 70-page eBook feature a collection of 21 PATTERNS, but the knitters of the Mittens For Akkol Yahoo group also have shared our knowledge and experience about knitting for extremely cold weather. We have included several stories about the children and experiences in Kazakhstan, sizing charts, and information for all knitters who enjoy working in wool and providing warm items for others.
I contributed 6 of my patterns and 9 other designers also contributed patterns, including two new patterns from knitting rock star, designer, author, teacher, and founder of Lorna's Laces Yarns Lorna Miser! So, now you know what I've been busy working on these past 9 months - heck, could have produced another child in that time. Speaking of kids...HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my youngest son Brett! So much to celebrate!
Congratulations on the book! I think what you do for the orphans of Kazakhstan is wonderful. Any plans for publishing this as a regular book?Post a Comment
