DUDUZA (comfort) DOLLS

As many of you know by my e-mails, last week I was watching Fox TV and they interviewed a woman who is very involved with CHABHA..Children Affected By HIVAIDS...There are thousands of parentless children in Rwanda and other African countries. These children have no change of clothes, no shoes, no toys. The group wanted to make a difference, they knitted dolls, counted 219, thought it was plenty, brought them over and were so overwhelmed by the response of the children. They loved, hugged and cried for these dolls but there was not enough to go around. The group returned to the states and is requesting...If you can knit, Please, follow these simple instructions and create this much needed "Lovey" in American, "Duduza" in African.
I have much donated yarns, you do not need a large amount but lots of different colors and textures to make them cheerful and fun. Here are two sites where you can see the dolls, retrieve the pattern and read for yourself the and also
When we have collected a good sized box full, A Knitter's Garden will pay to ship the box to Vermont. I will also have a collection jar for monetary donations to send along as well. Please help me make a difference....J

Up Coming Sale

Just a heads up...I am planning another "One Day Sale" on Saturday, May 19th from 10am to4pm. 30% off on Select Yarns. 20% off on hardbound books. Check back...more to come...

Bunny 101

On Sunday, Heather, Martha and I took "Caring for Bunnies" class with Nancy Bender of The Spinning Bunny, at the Fiber Studio. It was awesome! We were three of eleven ladies, twelve counting the Bunny! Learned lots of very useful info ranging from feeding, grooming, housing and mating to actually shearing, blending the raw fiber and spinning. What fun!! I can't wait to shear my Jacob sheep and blend her fiber with either Gracie or Bonnie. The fiber, thus yarn, will be phenomenal!
Martha and her, human girls, Sophie and Bella, visited today. They colored at the dining room table while Martha and I groomed the bunnies. Their first official "Shearing". I will ask my daughter to take have to see them...SO small with no fur! Bob was shocked when he saw HIS girls! Martha promised, the fur grows back so quickly and it's actually a relief for the bunnies to be shorn. I put an extra fleece blanket in their hutch, incase they are chilly tonight! It's the Mama in me.
Saturday, if all goes well this time, the sheep are being shorn...check back for that saga!
