Good News / Sad News

Hello all my yarny friends,
If anyone wants to do some de-stashing ~ please contact Linda. For YEARS she has been making and sharing her yarn art, but she relies on thrift & donated yarn to get her beautiful blankets into the hands of those who need them.
I just know some of you would be able to pass on the word to others or help by sending some yarn.
Thanks

First the Good News. . .

The yarn fairies have been busy! I found yet another bag of yarn waiting for me in the donation box where I leave my ripples.

575 bag o'yarn

Inside was about two pounds of acrylic yarn

575 pile

including. . .

more white. Yay!

575 plus white

If this incoming stream of white yarn continues, I may soon be complaining that my box of white stash is overflowing! lol. But seriously, I doubt that will ever happen as I love including white in the foster kids’ ripples.

More Good News. . .

Ann out in Oklahoma just became my newest yarn fairy. – Hi, Ann! – We’re tracking the box as it travels cross-country and I expect it will arrive early next week. I’m like a little kid waiting for Christmas! lol. I can’t help but wonder what ‘new’ colors are on their way to me.

Now for the Sad News. …

    It’s so thoughtful of you to ask your readers for yarn on my behalf. Thank You!

    To be completely honest with you, I’m feeling slightly uncomfortable about this. squirm. But then I always feel slightly uncomfortable about yarn fairies sending me yarn. Sharing unwanted yarn is a wonderful thing, but shipping it?. . . well, shipping is definitely not thrifty. Maybe, to be fair, we should let your readers know that I’m in Connecticut so they can find out how much shipping their yarn to me would cost before they offer, rather than after.

    Oh, yeah – and they should know that I only use acrylics in the kids’ ripples.
    Mmmmm, and cottons in my newest charity project. . . I’m starting to knit washcloths that will be handed out with soap and shoes to schoolkids in Haiti!

    Thanks again,
    Linda74

    1. I had no intention of making you uncomfortable! I can remove the post if you prefer, but your post & now your comment make it totally clear that you are in CT, USA. You do such a lovely service to those kids and I am always inspired by your giving. If we only find a single yarn fairy delivery to you, I will feel that it was a success. If not, at least we have shown others that you have a wonderful heart and maybe it will inspire them to do something kind in their own area 🙂

      1. Oh, no! – and now YOU feel uncomfortable about having made ME feel uncomfortable! lol. So sorry. I obviously need practice with simply saying ‘Thank You’. Too often I overthink things.

        I really like your idea of inspiring people to help someone where they live. And who knows, maybe some of your readers are here in New England!

        Now that I’ve quit overthinking, lol – I’d like to rewrite my earlier comment, if I may. . . .
