I was flabbergasted late on Friday to read that my yarn fairy, Sandi of Maryland, was sending me another box of charity yarn! Here’s my post about the last one. The next morning, before I’d had the chance to respond to Sandi’s email, the mailman surprised me with this bulging box of yarn.
I am blessed. I’m sitting here looking at this beautiful yarn, all five and a half pounds of it, which includes a skein of RHSS ‘Light Fuchsia’,
and four skeins of a fuchsia variegated, ‘Plum Pudding’,
– Oh, I’m going to have so much fun with that! –
and I’m thinking about how Sandi remembered that I’m always looking for fuchsia yarn, how she gathered and boxed it, and had it delivered right to my front door. What a thoughtful generous thing she did for me, for the foster kids.
Thank you so much, Sandi. Yarn fairies like you, like Anastacia, – remember all that variegated yarn she gave me?! – make such a Huge Contribution to my ripple project! Obviously I love the free yarn, but the encouragement and feeling of being part of a charitable community are more important. I really appreciate how many people are involved in the making and delivery of my ripples. The foster kids probably think some little grey-haired old lady sits with her several cats and makes their blankets aaaall by herself. lol.
Well, they’re not completely wrong, I am little, but I dye my hair, 56 isn’t old, I only have one cat and I get to work with a wonderfully supportive team of helpers!
P.S. As I was taking the yarn photos it started to snow, again. See the icy bits?
