As I sit here and type this post I am missing the New Year’s Day detox workshop at my yoga studio. Man, am I so bummed about that.
With the cold being in my chest and me coughing I just didn’t think it was a good idea for me or fair to others attending.
Even though I don’t get to benefit from the workshop others do. All the proceeds go to the Alameda County Food Bank. So something good still comes out of this.
I am a huge advocate of giving to others, especially charity. I feel that I was put on this planet to help others. I get a great sense of good feelings and warm heart when I help and give to others.
I also enjoy knitting. I make scarves, hats, slippers and blankets. (Though I am so over blankets. They take so long to knit.) And for the most part I enjoy making them for others.
I have participated in knitting hats for the troops with The Ship’s Project. (I have made a couple of troop hats for friends’ husbands.) I have knitted scarves for the Red Scarf Project. I have knitted hats for premie babies in the NICU. My friend Monica walked the 3-day Susan G. Komen 60-mile walk and asked me to make a scarf for her. I had time to make two.
To keep with my theme of charity and knitting for others in 2012, here is what I propose to my readers: On a first come, first-served basis I will take requests for a hat or scarf. The requester pays for the yarn and gives $25 to a charity of my choice. (If I need to mail them, you all pay for postage.) I will take one request per person. If for some reason I get overwhelmed with requests I will have to put a limit on the requests. To request an item, please comment in the comments below or e-mail me at email@example.com.
Happy New Year! And thank you for all your support to Go Fit Girl! in 2011 and for what is to come in 2012.
