Extraordinary thank you
November 19, 2012A Berkshire yarn shop suggested that we knitters send some
of our creations to the New Jersey people who have lost
so much this fall. So I quickly knit one of my raggedy scarfs,
long and warm and full of those leftovers all knitters have,
added a kid's hat that hadn't gone to anyone in the family
and a multi-colored hood that no one had ever used and
shipped them off.
I was stunned to receive a personal letter, written the
morning the things arrived in New Jersey, thanking me
and listing the items sent. Along with a "hugs" card.
The distribution group is part of the Linus Project, which
sends blankets year-round, far and wide. But imagine
taking the time to say thank you way beyond a form
I'm starting another scarf.
