This week is Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for a lot of things but I find myself sitting here tonight in awe. I've made wonderful friends through this blog over the years. This week takes the cake though. What started as a hope to provide a few hats to the homeless of New York City has snowballed. When I first posted I thought I'd be going down to the city on the train with a box or two of hats. It looks like I might have to drive to the city to make deliveries. In the past couple of days I've gotten over a hundred emails and Ravelry messages from everyone wanting to help.
If it weren't for friends like Anna, Cookie, Kathy, Kim, Norma, Sandy, Susan, Suzann and Wendy helping me by spreading the word... well... they did and this has become huge and I'm so pleased to be associated with such wonderful people. Anyone who knows me knows I'm not mushy. Not in front of people anyway. I was in the Army for eight and a half years you know. I'm tough. Just ask me. :-) But this G.I. Jean is writing this with tears in her eyes because of the giving nature of so many. I don't know why I'm surprised. I've seen knitters do this over and over again. I am blessed.
If you are just finding out about the hat drive, the info is here. The prizes are listed in the photo album on the upper left sidebar.
Let me tell you about a special little email I just got from Kay Gardiner. She has graciously offered to donate one signed copy of each of Mason Dixon's books as prizes! THANK YOU so much!!
