Ever have those days/weeks when you look at your craft and think, " I am in love."?
It seems like such a wonderful time to be a knitter. The community, the yarns, and the patterns, all seem to be in our favor.

The importance of appreciating where you are and what you are doing seems to be all the rage. Can being grateful and aware ever be wrong? I think not. As I was knitting last night, I was thinking of all the amazing friends I have made via my craft. I think the number would surprise those not in the yarn world.
A friend from New Zealand asked if I would be interested in a swap. All the lovelies pictured here represents her pride in what New Zealand has to offer, as well as her handspun.
When I put a call out requesting squares for a comfort blanket for a friend in need, the response was stunning. My request was simply that there was a yarnie in need of some comfort while battling health problems. There are still many more on their way to me. No doubt the recipient will feel the love that went into each and every square, rather like a big yarn hug.
I typed the word charity in the search option on Ravelry groups and found more than 400 groups created for the sole purpose of helping others.
This where my thoughts were last night as I loving my knitting. However you choose to play with yarn, it is a great time to be a yarnie.
