I had a knitting lesson w/ the friend that I'm teaching how to knit yesterday and then another one of our co-workers (who knits) came by where we were eating lunch and knitting.. and they all oohed nad aahed over the little hat.

I was also also able to teach the one who already knows how to knit how to do 'mattress seaming' so her stitched together seams doesn't show. *She's knitted for years she told me- but, hadn't extended her knitting skills a lot.

I love the idea of the school supplies! Our chairty with in our children's division does this and that is our challenge going on right now. I love the fact however that you are sending to children overseas's this is awesome to me and I am in hopes that HAIN can one day do this in a much larger way. Your post inspires me so much!!!

Yes, since I am a school teacher.. I thought that the schools needed all the help that they could have. I'm sure that they have very little to use in their schools.

I do know from our military connection-- that they have so few schools.. that the students have to take turns using the buildings for only 2-3 hours per day.. smaller children for a few hours, then older children. So, they don't go to school for several hours like American (and other) children do. They can't go to school in the winter time because they don't have heat in their schools.

So, I do hope that the boxes that we sent, last June, did make a difference?
