Happy New Year! 2019 is starting off right, because we made it to 1,000 balls in the knit ball pit, hoorayyyyy!
This is how it looked this morning in the shiny new inflatable pit.
We’re actually at 1380 balls right now, with more packages yet to be opened, and with even more expected to be added at Vogue Knitting LIVE later this month in NYC. Whew! I’ll be happy to receive them all, and at this point I think we can say the knit ball pit will be big enough that we no longer need to ask for donations. Instead, anyone who would still like to get involved can donate money directly to the American Foundation for Children with AIDS, who will be distributing the balls after Vogue Knitting LIVE to some very special kids in Congo, Uganda, Kenya and Zimbabwe.
Read more about this project at the original knit ball pit post. And follow me on Instagram for all the updates!
See you in NYC!
