Hi Auburn Chick! I'd love to help by sending some needles your way-
I'd also like to blog about your project too, if you'd allow.
Are you a Ravelry member? That's a HUGE community of crafters and would be a great place to post in the forum there.
Sounds like a great time with the girls!

Hi all!

I wanted to update you on things.

As of today, I've received a donation from a dear friend. Thanks to a sweet young girl who allowed me to use a 50% coupon MULTIPLE times, I was able to purchase the following...having $2 left over!



I also received needles from two sweet ladies.







My girls were THRILLED when they walked into my classroom at lunch today!!! They are so touched that y'all care! They are eagerly making plans for knitting scarves and blankets.

One of my girls sold her cotton "practice" scarf that I helped her bind off. She's excited and is thinking that maybe she can make a little bit of extra money doing this! I suggested that she might want to consider majoring in business when she goes to college, and then she could open her own yarn store! Gotta through in educational lessons when you can!!

These girls are knitting during class, with teachers' permission, and some have gotten so good that they can knit without looking down!

I've got new students coming in daily to check out what we are doing, and a young man expressed interest yesterday! He's shy, so it might take him awhile to develop the courage to stay.

Anyhoo, I wanted to let you know that your donations are being received with much JOY and thankfulness! You are helping reach these kids by showing that people...even strangers...care about them.

Thank you!!!

Thanks for letting us know! I haven't had a chance to send you something because I was sick last week. Soon, I promise! Keep us posted about the kids. It's fun to hear!

Hi all!

I wanted to publicly thank Sandy for donating fifteen sets of needles a couple of weeks ago! Oh word, but this gift was unexpected and oh so appreciated!

I also wanted to tell you that knitAbikini (Roux) wrote the first of a few blog posts about my group. You can read about us here.

Thank you so much for thinking of us. This group is turning into so much more than girls who knit. The bonds we are forming are tight, and they are helping me connect with students who do not have consistent role models in their lives.



I blogged about the group here.

Love y'all to pieces (or should I say "scraps"?)...

You're very welcome! I was so happy to find those needles for such an amazing price at my local thrift store!

Wow! It's so fun to hear their progress, and the charity of so many knitters out there to donate so many items!
I wondered when you might have a young man interested! And that might take some serious courage on his part to sit down and knit depending on how harsh his fellow classmen are. It's not just a woman's craft, that's for sure!
Do you have more needles than knitters now? That's not a bad problem to have, room for more. Is it restful for you during lunch at all? Do you have time to knit along with them?
Thanks for sharing, AuburnChick!
