I'm ready to mail my 'lone' little sock.. and now I can't find the address to mail them directly to the person who will be packing them all up to send out.
Can someone send it to me please? Thanks!

Updated almost daily.. honest! I'm moving to Germany this summer! My name on Ravelry is: iwouldratherknit
I called Denise yesterday to let her know we had reached our goal and she said but this weekend I finished 6 more
We go to the school today to finally get into the last class...then on Thursday we pick up the last of some cards...after talking to Becky she filled me in on how her son will be sealing the cards after they are checked...so I'm going to find him some stickers to send along...that way he can just seal them with a Christmas sticker...
I finished a total of 11, and will be sending them off today! Some of them aren't perfect because I had my teenager help me seam some and sew the bells on, but they look ok. I will post a picture later when I get them uploaded.

Wow you guys -- I've been off the computer for three days and I have tears streaming down my face as I see we reached our goal and I've been reading the posts from last weekend!! You all are so awesome!
I just can't express how much fun it has been to be part of such a great group of knitters and crocheters... Thank you all so much for making me feel so welcome. I've done a lot of charity knitting for local things, and am trying to participate in the Special Olympic scarf charity due next January, but this is actually the first on-line charity I've been a part of and I love it!! Like someone else said, I joined the KH forum basically to see what this charity thread was all about... I'm so glad I did!!
Thanks to you Julie for heading this up and I would be happy (and proud) to stay in the group and knit year-round if you (or Becky or whoever) would like to keep us going.
Thanks to all of you for such a great job!!

We went to the other 2nd grade class today and they decorated the cards and stuffed them. We also had a special stocking made for one of the boys in the class, his dad is over in Iraq. His stocking is the bigger of the two photo below...the kids also signed a card to his dad and in the picture of the boy signing a card that is him writting a note to his dad. He told us he really was wishing that his dad came home for Christmas and he missed him very much
The last picture and only one I didn't change to coloring book is my 2 kids and the little boy of the lady who is helping me. They are at her house stuffing more stockings and putting them with cards.
