Thank you, my friend. There is a charity knitting group at my church that could use that yarn.

I received some more donations over the weekend!

Tobinknit sent a circular needle, with 4 small journals for us to use for our projects! (She included a square for our "Many Colors" afghan, and a handknit dishcloth for me!)


I also received a donation for our postage from auburnchick!
Thank you both!

Today, I had to use some of the money that was donated for postage and supplies for our Oddball Projects.

So, I decided to give a full report on how I've used the money:

So far, I have received $220 in donations!
Thank you all SO MUCH for your help!

I have spent $149 on postage and supplies as follows:

eBay purchase $6.78 - 3 Bryspun Circular Needles (9-24, 10-24, 10-29)
Postage 1-22-08 $1.98 - Patriotic Baby Blanket to Suziehomemaker
Postage 1-22-08 $4.60 - Neon Baby Blanket to Doodknitwit
Postage 1-22-08 $5.55 - Misty Blue Shawl to Losnana
Postage 1-22-08 $21.60 - Circus Baby Blanket to England
Postage 1-22-08 $27.60 - Lapghan #1 to Amy
Postage 1-22-08 $15.65 - Blanket #1 to Amy
Barnes/Noble 1/22/08 $1.66 - Horse Journal
Barnes/Noble 1/22/08 $1.66 - Owl Journal
AC Moore 2/14/08 $9.70 - 10 Journals at AC Moore (97 cents each)
AC Moore 2/14/08 $6.99 - Size 6 Circular Needle
Postage 2-14-08 $3.41 - Shamrock Baby Blanket to Debinoz
Postage 2-14-08 $9.60 - Lapghan #2 to Karne
Postage 2-14-08 $9.75 - Magic Shawl to Abbily
Postage 2-14-08 $5.25 - Purple Paradise Baby Blanket to Foxyie
Postage 2-14-08 $16.70 - Blanket #5 to Tobinknit

I still have 71 dollars available, so things are going well!

I've been trying to find size 6 circulars on eBay, because I need them for our Preemie blankets. I haven't had any luck, because someone always outbids me at the last minute. I'm trying to be careful with buying them. I had to pay full price today for a size 6 needle, because I really need it. I'm planning on going to AC Moore again this Saturday to use a 50% off coupon to buy another one.

Thanks for the update. Your time and effort on all of these charity projects is greatly appreciated!!!!

I'm checking http://www.discontinuedbrandnameyarn.com($2.99 for most circs), they don't have any 6s long enough right now but they update their inventory pretty often.

I wonder if KP would be willing to donate any 6's...if we gave them the link to this thread...

Maybe we could call and ask to speak to a manager. Even donating one or two would be so helpful, and it would promote their product. We could include a flyer or a card explaining that KP donated the needles that would travel with the blanket.

I want to try my HL and see if they will donate...just haven't had time to go by yet with school (kicking my butt these last two weeks).

Oh, and thank you for the detailed accounting. I certainly trust you, but it is nice to see how the money is spent. It's also quite an eye opener to see how much postage costs.

You rock, my dear!

I wish I knew how to talk them into donating. I'm not very good at that. I'm okay with asking for help from all of you, because you know me. But, I'm a little intimidated by those BIG IMPORTANT companies.

Now, make sure you still have size 6 needles for your own stash, my friend.

Wow Shandeh, you're so busy! I checked out the list of things you've posted--didn't see Angel Wings coming to me yet--right? It says on the Oddball blanket list that I'm waiting for it to arrive, but it's not on it's way yet, right? I'm wondering because my mom sent me something and I haven't seen it, and remember I have that mailperson who likes to throw!? (I did make eyecontact with her today though, so maybe I'll have things show up miraculously tomorrow!) Just wanted to check....
