My daughter, Tirzah, is off to Rwanda this fall to work with Paul Rusesabagina ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Rusesabagina), stay at hotel rwanda, and work in the orphange. (remember she needs knit hats for african orphanage!)
to help raise money, Sarah of Perfect Day yarns (http://www.perfectdayyarns.com/) is dying up sock yarn “Path of Hope” colourway, dyed to match the rwanda flag (blue, green and yellow ). $7 of each skein will go towards Tirzah's trip with PEACE.
if you are interested in a skein we are doing pre-orders now, so we can get an idea of how many to dye up. I dont want Sarah to have to block out too much time, dye too many or too few.
if you want one or a dozen, leave a note on the blog or email me.
Mrs. Jeannette Kagame, First Lady of the Republic of Rwanda “As a nation, we’ve decided not to surrender. As a nation, we’ve seen the worst, and the people have learned a lot. We’ve taken stock of the past, and we’re building on it to change it. We are now on the path of hope, instead of despair. The path of hope includes partnership with the institution of the church and with individual churches in Rwanda."
