Lori is a blogger that is headed to Africa. She is going to be visiting African villages to visit with the children. You can read her story on her blog. If you are new to Lori, get over there right now! She is wonderful. Love everything about her.
For her trip, she has reached out to others to knit little pockets that the children can have. She will pass them out during her visit next month. I have knitted up three pockets out of alpaca yarn. Inside contain a small felt ball handmade by my older boys. We thought this would be a fun little thing to play with.
My sister, Andee, has also knitted up a few and will be mailing them out tomorrow to Lori in California.
I've been in a bit of a knitter's rut lately. It was so much fun to sit down yesterday and make something that I know will go to little children all the way in Africa. I hope they enjoy them!
