As I hinted here, I am off for a few days away this week and as you might of guessed from the title of this post, Paris is where I am heading. Valarie invited me to join her to celebrate this exciting book and now I am all packed and ready to go, I just have to decide which project to take with me to keep my hands busy at the airport (and my mind off the terror I feel at the idea of flying!) The crochet is a Critron shawl and the blue/green knitting is the start of a stripe study shawl...which do you think I should choose?
I'll be back next week with photo's and tales to tell but while I am away I would love it if you would check out this link to Kiva, who are a...
"non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world."
I am on my second loan and love the fact that I am able to help, in a very real way, to create opportunities for individuals to find a way out of poverty. The link above offers a free trial while funding lasts and I would love it if you would go and take a look and find out more!
