Surprise Package

yarn from Ellen
October 2017
On Friday I picked up my accumulated mail at the post office and was surprised to find a package from Ellen (The Ellen Report). Tucked inside the box was a variety of worsted weight yarn (scraps and full skeins) and two skeins of sock yarn.

Ellen thought I could use the worsted weight yarn for charity knitting and included the sock weight as a special treat for me. The hank of brown and gold yarn (University of Wyoming colors) will be perfect for knitting a pair of Cowboy Joe socks! Knitting will commence very soon.

Ellen, thank you for sending a box filled with fiber goodies. Your kindness is beyond measure.

  9. Aww Nancy. This post made me tear up! (dangit I'm at work shh!) For someone whose kindness is so generously shared and given back to other people, strangers in this world, it means a lot. This kindness you give is so important. Every ounce of it counts in this world.
