Not ready to post about Stitches yet, but here's something to tide you over!
How great it is to buy gorgeous sock yarn and support a charity as well. This is what I did by purchasing Madelinetosh yarn in Umoja colorway. It is SW Merino - 395 yards. It is spun like Koigu and feels wonderful! The colorway name comes from a Women's Group in Kenya that advocates for, and enables women's empowerment via HIV/Aids health education, children's education, political participation and community action.
Here is the link on Woolgirl where I heard about the charity. or you can directly to here to go directly to the group itself. Isn't it pretty!?
