Our paths first crossed through providence. I strongly believe that statement because I cannot rationalize the events any other way.
Even before we actually met, Lois was my Yarn Angel.
In 2007, was at a local thrift shop casually looking in the yarn bin. The woman standing next to me (a stranger) asked what I was planning to make. I told her that I did a lot of charity knitting. She told me of a friend who was down-sizing and needed to get rid of some yarn and would I give her my contact information. I jotted down my number and address and promptly forgot about the encounter until bags of yarn began appearing on my doorstep. Yes, bags of yarn - garbage bags stuffed with full skeins and odd bits of baby and worsted weight yarn. Some of which can be seen here. I kept much of the yarn but also shared some with a local Prayer Shawl ministry.
I was thankful for Lois' gift, yet her generosity did not end with that first delivery. The yarn bags continued to appear.
Fortunately one day, I was home when a delivery was made and met Lois, my Yarn Angel. At Christmas, I sent Lois photos of the items I made from the bounty: baby sweaters, baby hats, baby blankets, slippers and hats for the troops and homeless.
Bags of yarn (albeit smaller bags) still appear on my doorstep from time to time. I think Lois must have told some of her friends because surely she did not have this large of stash. (Lois has been giving me yarn for nearly a year and a half)
Monday, my Yarn Angel blessed me yet again with her generosity. (See above photo)
Thank you, Lois, and thank you, Lord for bringing Lois, my Yarn Angel, into my life.
