"Hello, I thought you would like to see the photo of the little boy in Bangladesh. I bought the wool from you and the lovely lady at the desk printed out the Bangladesh cricket uniform for me so we could get the colours just right. My 80 year old mother knitted this. These children have nothing, their father is my brothers rickshaw wallah. I will be coming for more wool for sure. He is very proud of his jersey"
I remember this very well as luck would have it, I was in the shop covering that particular day - Susan is often in purchasing yarn for her mother and another knitting group. I remember it so vividly as I would have thought that Bangladesh would be the last place that warm woollies would be worn, but the northern part of the country gets very cold and at each end of the day and an extra layer is most certainly required, but often not available. After receiving this photograph I quizzed her a little farther and asked what is it that they do with the yarn?
