Thank you message from Iliff

The residents of Iliff Nursing and Rehab Center would like to thank you so much for the beautiful scarves you made in memory of Mary Read. It was very thoughtful of you to think of the residents, the scarves really brightened their day!!! One of the residents stated that when she wears the scarf, she will always think of Mary, even though she did not know her she was a beautiful person. On behalf of the residents I would like to thank you again for the donation of scarfs.

Emily Pollon, Director of Activities

[P.S. Emily also noted in her email to me that "The picture is only of a few residents. We did deliver the rest of the scarves to all the residents. Thank you again."]

Drop off has occured!

Meet Emily, the very gracious person at the Iliff Nursing and Rehabilitation Center who accepted our donations.
We had two boxes full of fuzzy goodness (nearly fifty items in total) which were all donated in Mary's name and will be given to elderly/pediatric patients.
If anyone else would like to organize a group drop off for people who haven't sent their items off yet (or are planning to knit more), please do post!
And thanks again.

Wow, everyone. This is a whole lot of scarves. Between this and the earlier set, this is going to be quite the drop off. Thank you all!

Message from Mary's father (!!!)

Mr. Read sent us the following message last night:

This is Mary's father Peter. Mary's stepmom Cathy and I would just like to thank all of you for the wonderful work you are doing in Mary's memory. She would be (we believe she is) pleased that you are putting so much time and effort into things of beauty for the service of others. Please know that we are watching your progress and it brings us much comfort to know that Mary is remembered in so many different ways by so many different people all over the world.
Warmest regards,
Peter Read

First mobius arrived yesterday...

And rumor has it that 12(!) more scarves will be in the mail today or tomorrow.
If you'd like to be part of the big drop off, now would be a good time to think about sending things out. :)
