Please contact TracyMom1 if you have things for this family.

What is your family situation?

Dh is in Nursing school and working PT as a CNA. I am a homeschool mom with 2 dds. We were blessed with a surprise pregnancy and I am due in January. We moved a couple of months ago and there have been so many extra expenses and several large unexpected bills. We have no savings left and are barely scraping by each month. We have had to rack up debt and take out an emergency loan to make it through the semester and we still have 1 left to go. We used all of our available student loan money to pay for our midwives fees before all this stuff happened.
Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (e.g. cat, dog, smoke)

Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate? Faith based Christmas

2. Wool yarn, a skein or two can get me some longies for the baby or hats and mittens for the girls. I have also been hoping to knit a sweater for each of my girls and a white one for the new baby. The Baby one would only take one skein of about 220 yards of worsted weight yarn, something soft like Malabrigo worsted maybe for that soft newborn skin smile.gif. Dd1 has asked for a pullover sweater and that would take about 800 yards of worsted weight wool. She loves bright colors, even skeins of different colors that I could stripe together would be fun. Dd2 has been asking for a red hooded cardigan that would take 950 yards of red worsted weight wool.
5 skeins of cranberry swirl worsted, 1 skein of Malabrigo in natural, and 1 skein of Cascade 220 in black yarn.
