The bloggers I've met here in Cyberspace really are the most kind hearted, generous people I've come across. Take Sally from Crafty Northerner blog, she recently blogged about some yarn she'd bought to knit squares with to make a blanket for a charity which is helping children in Syria. Sally wasn't happy with the way the colours were falling, it's a variegated yarn so you can't really see the pattern it will create before you start knitting with it. I commented that I liked it and the next thing I knew, Sally was asking for my address so she could send me the second, unused ball she'd bought.
It's Wondersoft, which is the name of Stylecraft's baby yarns. It's lovely and soft and I'm now on the lookout for just the right project to make with it.
Not only did Sally send me the yarn, but also in the parcel were some lovely magnetic bookmarks and the cutest little granny square brooch. Sally has only been crocheting for about six months, but the square is so neat. I pinned it to my top straight away.
The smaller, heart shaped bookmarks are just the thing to use in my Filofax, and I'm quite short on actual bookmarks to use in books so I'm very pleased with the larger one too.
Thank you, Sally. It was a lovely parcel to receive.
