There's more potential in a few skeins of yarn than I ever, in my pre-knitting life, could have possibly imagined. Case in point: the three thousand dollar bag. I'll tell you the "punchline" first so that we can get to the good stuff- more photos. Between a charity sale of knitted items at which these bags went like hotcakes and three "knitting parties" that my teaching pal Beth and I hosted for kids at my school, these little carryalls that no one can resist brought $1,400 for Maison de Naissance, a birthing center in Haiti, and $1,500 for financial aid at our school. Yep.
Hosting a knitting party is easy-peasy. Gather your supplies (see above). Assemble enthusiastic knitters:
Snacks are a must. I recommend the coconut cupcakes highly, especially as I did not have to bake them.
And so it goes. From these humble beginnings...
...to 14 babies who will receive all of their vaccines.
What a beautiful bag.
