A while back I wrote a post waxing poetic about the City of Columbia recycling bags. Several people wrote to share their own odes to the mythical Blue Bag. These days I don't have a steady supply of them so it nearly broke my heart to give this one away. I actually considered giving away the yarn and taking back the bag, but I figured that would be tacky, especially considering these women living with HIV/AIDS have enough problems already.
This group meets to craft baby outfits and lacy lady sweaters with knitting needles made from bike spokes. I got lost several times during the 2-hour ride to their village with this ginormous sack of donated yarn strapped to my bike rack.
