J is for Joy.
I talked to Pippikneesocks yesterday. She didn’t know the scope of what had been done, but she knew something was going on. So I clued her in and true to form, she said she didn’t know whether to be mad at me or overjoyed. She thought we all had forgotten about her. I think more than the financial help we’re giving, she’s thrilled that we would think highly enough of her to want to help her out.
Symeon also told me that she hadn’t knit in months. She just didn’t feel well enough to. We all know how life can get us down. Well, Monday she picked up some yarn and needles and started to make herself a shawl. Our collective goodwill has got her back on the needles again.
Symeon wanted me to express to you all how incredibly happy she was and how your show of support to her has really lifted her spirits, she appreciates every ones good thoughts and offers of help. And I want to thank you too for bringing a little joy back into her life.
More Joy is coming by way of auctions. Starting tomorrow will be:
The Knitting Experience donated some yarn from the fiber company. It’s incredibly gorgeous and enough to make a sweater. I’m going to donate the last batt I have from Indigo Moon. They’re no longer in business so it’s a rare thing this batt. And Erin is giving up a gorgeous shawl kit from Wooly Wonka.
I will be using Ebay for the auctions so if you’re not signed up there, then you may want to head back over and get logged in and ready. These are only 3 of the things that will be auctioned. I’m waiting for more items to come in included another lace shawl!
Knitters and spinners are amazing people.
I couldn’t get a joyful picture of Symeon but I do have one of my girls.
They had a happy moment together watching a dinosaur documentary. When they’re happy and getting along like that, I’m joyful too.
