making a difference

Posted by christelpistol on February 26, 2009 at 2:44 PM

i got this email from Mama B today.  it makes me SO happy that i am making a difference. 

 

Christel, thank you for sending the knit-a-square link.
 
I have just come from my principal's office, asking if I can sponsor a 6th grade recess knitting group--I can teach kids to knit, and we can start making squares once or twice a week. Next year I may even be able to pull in some moms or volunteers from Sun City to expand this if it takes off--right now I don't feel like I can have more than 10 kids or so at a time. I am also going to send the link home to all of my students families, asking for donations of needles and worsted, and inviting them to participate at home. My principal was very supportive and will get back to me as soon as he can bounce this off the powers-that-be at Central Office. Cross your fingers!
 
They didn't let me run the UNICEF collection this year because of money issues, but I feel it is really important to get kids to think outside of themselves, and this really appealed to me.
 
Love and hugs,
Alison
i have finished 4 squares so far.  it takes 40 squares to make one blanket.  i am personally challenging myself to knit 40.  i am having so much fun with this project!
