Good Morning! I awoke to big puffy snowflakes floating down in a steady stream to the ground. I think it is beautiful.
Here are my Saturday thoughts:
*The above yarn is a treat that I got myself. I have never tried Beaverslide Dry Goods Yarns, but Amy Beth (Fat Squirrel) is always chatting them up. This is Worsted Weight Winter Rosehip.
While it may be a treat for me to knit with, (and it is) this will be a yarn that becomes a gift. That’s the fun of new yarn. We get to USE it while we knit, enjoy it and then, perhaps, give it away!
I met two retired nurse pals for lunch yesterday. Joany is a great knitter and she told me of a place to donate yarn. Apparently North Lawndale High School in Chicago has been teaching knitting to get kids off the streets and instill calm. One student even sells the things she knits! This is their address if you wish to donate,
1615 South Christiana Avenue, Chicago , Il 60623.
Perhaps there is a school near you that does something similar?
Because it is almost the Season, I also want to shout out that Spritewrites.net is continuing her Virtual Advent Tour. She asks bloggers to write one post about whatever you are celebrating, any denomination, what you are enjoying and what you are seeing that brings you Holiday joy. I signed up for two dates. You can pick your date or she will assign you a date. I’ve never done this, but would like to participate this year.
Finally, good news. Fireman is 6 weeks out and feels totally normal again after his rib fracture. Thanks for all the blog concern! Wishing you moments of peace this weekend.
