By now, you know all about the Botswana Project and that our next collection deadline is March 13th. My doctor personally carries all donated items to Botswana for distribution to children in need. So many generous knitters and crocheters have contributed items, including friend magnusmog.
How much do I love getting packages addressed this way!
Magnusmog lives in Scotland (lucky!), so her hand-knits are taking the long way round to Botswana via my house in the United States. She sent me two scarves and 6 hats for the kids!
It seems to me that since all of you have been so generous in your support of this project, I would return the favor. Everyone who sends me items for these children will be entered to win a prize from my own stash! I won't tell you exactly what yarn (because I haven't quite decided yet), but I will give at least three - count 'em, three! - yarny prizes to three of you (selected with a random generator thingy by Mr. Tumblyday).
What do you need to do to enter? Send me one or more hand-knit or hand-crocheted warm item, sized for children. You can email me for an address. The deadline is March 13th, and the prizes will be announced on March 16th.
