I must say what a wonderful response on my last post about a wonderful woman!
I am so glad it excited and inspired you all! Thank U for coming to read about Sojourner on my blog and sharing her story with others! You all are too kind and really know how to keep a positive thing going!
Speaking of those in history that have knitted. Recently, Urban Knitrix ironically mentioned on her blog how Dr. George Washington Carver crocheted, knitted and did needlepoint!
I also discovered HIStory over at a site called Yarn Boys in History. George even dyed his own yarn!
And speaking of males knitting. Over this past weekend, I meet a black man who knits. I never personally layed eyes on one before!! It was refreshing to experience!
~ I also really wanted to highlight the eternal kindness of knitters in this post ~Shortly after Thanksgiving, A Knitter In Queens had a blog contest on her site and I ended up being one of the winners!
Guess who has enhanced her stash with 7 balls of NORO! Yah!!She felt bad about delaying my package that she included 2 balls of Regia sock yarn. Which will be perfect since I made the commitment to do more socks in the new year! And I would prefer to do 2 at 1 time having these two balls will work out well! Thank You Veronica!!
Then I received something in the mail besides bills! Myriam went back to her home country and was a sweetheart to remember me! Just one of her regular ole e-blog buddies!
She sent me a post card all the way from Germany! Did I mention how she was just a sweetheart for even thinking of me??I have yet to travel overseas and I just love when others send me postcards from their travels!
Also, during our last Charlotte Purls knit group meeting we were gifted these cute pins by Connie
