DS has been working in Haiti. He has a school he is revamping on a volunteer basis with some very knowledgeable friends. He has asked me to visit in December and teach parents (mostly women I imagine) to knit & crochet! :eek: This will seriously test my French skills. In any case, I have been given loads of yarn by my friend who runs a shop in town. I also collected scissors, needles, basic books and patterns, rulers, etc. He will be visiting here for a week soon, and people are already collecting pencils, pens, skipping ropes, etc for the school. It's mighty exciting and a huge challenge.
