And the fiber swap was a great idea. People brought wonderful things they wanted to let go of -- and most of us went home with a few new treasures!

It is safe to say that Beth's family members are well stocked in socks, mittens, hats and sweaters, but she also knits regularly for Afghans for Afghans, a humanitarian project that sends hand-knit and crocheted blankets and sweaters, vests, hats, mittens, and socks to the beleaguered people of Afghanistan.

Congratulations Beth! We are so proud of you!
