Roots Ethiopia partners with communities in Ethiopia to turn local ideas into lasting change. They work together to improve schools, educate children, enable livelihoods, and include everyone. Donating to Roots Ethiopia is just one of the ways I like to “give back”. They help families in the region where I was born and that’s very special to me. Also, if you’d like to help me and my family return to Ethiopia to see the library/science lab I built and to meet the children in my birth village who use those new facilities please consider donating to my GoFundMe. Thank you crochet friends!Learn More

I love my new Jonah Jacket. I got the ivory color and the patches really look nice on it. So many people compliment me when I wear it and I tell them all about you (if they don’t already know!).
I gave everyone in our crochet club one of your pins and they really liked them. It made a nice Christmas gift for them. Thank you.
All of your tutorials are great but I really liked the pink shawl you made. I followed along and made a light green one- you are a great instructor young man!
I can’t wait until your pattern book comes out. I preordered mine and got one for my sister too.
