Knitting for Charity

I came across a volunteer program that I am thinking about signing up to do, probably after March of 08.  Financially I will be in much better shape, and hopefully I’ll be able to find a babysitter for Johnathan so I don’t have to depend on mom so much.

Anyways, it’s called Knit for Life.  The cause is something near and dear to my heart.  My aunt has breast cancer as we speak and not doing so well, and I personally know how therapeutic knitting can be.  I just hope that I am able to teach someone else how to knit.  I have given a couple of people refresher courses, but I haven’t taught anyone other than myself to knit from scratch.  We shall see.  I am supposed to be teaching a co-worker of mine to knit this winter, so part of it will be dependent on whether I can get out of my head and into words what I am trying to say.

The other thing I wanted to bring up was this site.  She puts up all these great sites and tidbits that I know I will be checking out frequently.

Christmas knitting is still trudging along.  I am still working on my secret pals scarf.  I am about half way done with it.  I hope to finish it today while I am home from work with the kiddo.

That’s it for now!
