Yippee!!!
Today, I received a great big box from Ladybug Lady.

It's our big, beautiful blanket!
I might be biased, but I really think it's BEAUTIFUL!

Sandy,

That is beautiful, I'm glad you posted the pictures of it as I've been wondering how it turned out.

Hello my friends!

I know you will be pleased to hear that I have FINALLY completed all the work on our beautiful Oddball Blanket #4!!


Now, it is ready to be donated to charity.

I have decided to give our beautiful blanket to the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.

Pine Ridge Reservation is the poorest spot in the USA. The average life expectancy for residents is only 47 for males and early 50s for women. The unemployment rate is 90% and the teen suicide rate is four times the national average. Basics such as running water, heat and food are scarce for many residents let alone jobs and health care. These challenges are particularly difficult to deal with given the geographical isolation of the Rez and the incredibly harsh climate.

I have communicated with the main contact (Pam Little Sparrow Wingard), and she is very pleased that we are giving them the blanket.

She said to be sure to share this message with all of you:
I think you and the other knitters are special angels. You will be remembered in the prayers of my Family and the Lakota family that receives this afghan.
Gentle Blessings,
Pam Little Sparrow Wingard

That is a most awesome and generous home that will always welcome something like that. I can't think of a better place to send it.

Shandeh, would you mind sending me the contact info for Pam? I've got some pieces I was looking to donate and that need a home desperately.

Right now, they are collecting knit or crochet afghan squares, which can be sent to:

Pam Little Sparrow Wingard
16854 London Avenue
Baton Rouge, LA 70819

You could probably go ahead and send any of your handknit or crocheted pieces. They need things for all ages and sizes.

If you use wool yarn, please attach a note about that.
