We just opened all of the boxes, envelopes, and packages that have arrived for Nest. There are, as of today, 184 items! There are baby blankets, a beautiful shawl, a pair of socks, fingerless mitts, mittens, scarves, and cowls. And, of course, 121 hats.
I will continue to check the mailbox daily. In truth, we have no desire to end the project. The p.o. box will remain open. I spoke today with our contacts in Ft. Kent, Maine. (Hello Laura and Linda!) As soon as I know the final details for distribution, I will let you know.
Thank you, knitters, weavers, and crocheters. We have enjoyed your letters and have been touched by your kind wishes. Your contributions will help warm so many hands, heads, and hearts this winter.
