Not only did she include lots of fab yarn and chocolate (I already ate one of the bars, so it doesn't appear herein, lol), she also sent me all kinds of neat things she had crocheted and knitted, including three tribbles (potscrubbers), a dishtowel, and two hairbands :)

there are also some other little goodies, including DPNs, lavender incense, a lipstick case filled with stitch markers and an adorable pincushion!! thanks, Carola!! i hope you'll be receiving my package soon!

Here is a box of items I knitted for Warm Woolies. I sent it to them last month & am getting another box ready to send now.

I went to an academic conference last weekend & as I was walking around knitting, I had people come up to me and ask what I was working on. It gave me great pleasure to evangelize about Warm Woolies, so I hope more and more people will be knitting for them now :)
