Wish fulfilled with wool

Ashlynn Johnson accomplished a feat last month that has evaded her aunts. She competed at nationals in the Make it with Wool contest.

The acceptance was bittersweet, as Ashlynn's grandmother, who was involved with Make it with Wool for several years, passed away in 2013.

Roxana Johnson would tell Ashlynn stories of her experiences at nationals. Stories that Roxana also shared with her daughters Elizabeth Downare and Amanda Batteiger.

Lynda Jordan, of Laramie, took over Roxana's position as state representative and escorted Ashlynn to Charleston, S.C. where nationals took place in January.
