For anyone who is interested, I got this email from Save the Children Canada:

We will be running a campaign that will launch on November 1, but it will be for children of all ages, not just newborns and will include blankets, scarves and sweaters as well. I will send out an email that explains it a little closer to the date, and it will also be posted at www.savethechildren.ca <http://www.savethechildren.ca/>

I hope to participate in that.

I have my fingers crossed . If it does wash and dry well then at least you will not get caron yarn withdrawal. I do not want to see you climbing the walls .

The hats are cute Julie. Glad to hear that the new yarn feels good.

I will make another post when the Canadian campaign starts. It keeps costs down when mailing within your own country.
