Fiber Friday Week 3 (late)

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!?

Jill,
The yarn is lovely. I am your winter doldrims's swap partner's sister. She is in the hospital with a gallbladder thing we think. She will have your package a bit late. I am far aaway from her but my Mom is planning on putting the finishing things together and mailing it this week. She had everything done but had topick up two more things . So my Mom is doing that...Please bare with her she feels horrible, it is just one more thing on top of her and the kids flu!
Thanks!
