yabba dabba doo!

So, as some of you know, I have been doing a "fun scarf" project for a local women's shelter.

All of you who are opening your etsy stores gave me an idea though. I proposed the proposition to the ladies in charge of the shelter and so far the reception is warm. The idea is:

make a bunch of items that can be sold around Thanksgiving. All funds go directly to the shelter, and then whatever is not bought gets donated to the shelter.

There's still not an exact venue or date or anything like that, and there is always the chance the sale itself won't happen...but regardless, I'd like to make a big donation of "stuff" around Christmas time.

If anyone would like to help, that would be great...or initiate something similar with your own local shelters. This particular shelter is for women and their children, up to 17 years old. I'm dreaming of baby blankets, afghans, socks, hats, ponchos, crocheted toys...whatev.

Additionally...any report on the blankets for the gulf? "doclegs,"... Robyn...?

I should clarify too, Blankets for the Gulf as in Blankets for Louisiana and Mississippi...not Persian :)

Thanks for being great everybody. As usual.
