In 2008, I made a trip to Tanzania. While I was there, I met a Great Man of God, who devoted his life to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He was in need of a building and I promised to do what I could to help. Knitting for Tanzania is my attempt to help him build a church building. All profits from sales of my knits go directly to help with his building project.

I made my girlfriend for her birthday. I used Red Heart Razzle Dazzle. I had read that someone else had used it one time and was satisfied with it. Personally, I would not buy it again. I prefer to pay a little more and get a better value in my yarn. When I purchased the yarn for these socks, I matched dye lot and color number. I knit the first sock and started the second, when I discovered even though I purchased matching lots, the yarn did not have the same colorway. I sent an e-mail to Red Heart, which I found out is a division of Coats and Clark, telling them of my disappointment. They did follow up with a letter telling me that it is not unusual having different colorways in matching dye lots and color numbers. I totally disagree with them on that. It has never happened to me before when buying a yarn of better quality. They did, however, replace my original two skeins of yarn with three. I now have the two original skeins, after frogging the original sock, and one full and two partial skeins of the yarn they sent me. Guess I will make some little socks with it.
So anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY WENDY. Hope you get many wearings from your socks.
By the way, they are the same length, her legs must be crooked:)
