I'm way impressed to see how quickly all of you managed to find a charity - and some of you have already finished the first projects, wo-how! I can't believe what a difference there is to charities overseas and ours here - here they'll collect clothes and stuff too for various reasons, but as I saw it on their webpages, they're not particularly interested in self-knitted items. Huh? Why not?
Then I contacted our local women's shelter if they're in need of something knitted - and would you believe it, the mail that I got back wasn't very friendly indeed. They said they'd need money, not anything knitted - sh**, they made me feel like a dumbo.
I'm still waiting for an answer from the local hospital, perhaps they'd need some little hats and stuff for babies born too early (once more I don't remember the correct english word for it). If I get one more answer like the one from the women's shelter, then I'll be molto-frustrated and will be heading for one of your overseas charities. If they don't want my stuff here - to hell with them ;(
Thanks for reading my rant, I needed to get that off my chest!
Onto a happier topic - my boys played against one of the "biggies" last night and totally messed up the first 40 minutes - it seemed they were non-existant, they were back 2:0 and no one would have given a dime on them anymore.
Then the last period started and voilá - our new darling Canadian Christian Sbrocca (he's a singer too, having released 2 CDs in Canada already) showed what he's up to - goodie! They scored 4 times in 2.22 minutes and won the game - hallelujah!
