Fund Raiser of the Knitting Kind

I am selling my unfinished Armagh Sweater from Alice Starmore's Celtic Collectin on Ebay. It has been knit in Lion Brand yarn, and I think I have enough skeins left to finish. If not, they still sell the yarn and the same colors as well. One sleeve has been started. Left to knit are the two sleeves and neckline.

I began knitting this sweater in 1997 when I went to Latvia in the Peace Corps. I am planning on donating the earnings from the sweater to the school that I taught at in Ugale, Latvia.

The schools there do not have any money, still use books from the Soviet Union and most students do not graduate. I am hoping that the school will be able to use the money I send to buy new books. If you would like to see the listing go to Ebay.

    It's such a wonderful idea to donate the money you'll get for the unfinished sweater to the school in Latvia. I have my fingers crossed that it'll reach a good price! Best wishes from Austria!

    I'm just curious: have you ever sold a half finished sweater before? wow. I'm with dipsy in that I think it's a good idea to donate money. Doesn't it make you feel good to give to other people?

    I'm brand new to blogging.
    Here's my interest. I want to start a knitting cooperative with Mexican women in San Miguel de Allende. Any ideas?

    What do you mean by knitting cooperative?

    Dear All,
    I am the English Language teacher from Latvia. I appreciate Wendy's wonderful idea to help us with raising money for books that we really need for classes in English.
    I can only admire Wendy's helpfulness and generosity that still exists in her heart.
    Thanks in advance and, perhaps, our dreams will come true.

    Anita, teacher of English from Ugale
