There has been lots of activity by Mumsnetters recently.
We have been knitting or crocheting squares for blankets to give a woolly hug to families in our forum who have been hit by tragedy. We hope our blankets can offer some comfort to those who are feeling bereft.
We knit and natter online, sharing patterns, donors sending wool to knitters (wool and chocolate!), helping novice knitters to cast on for the first time, then marvelling over some of the magnificent squares created by many talented hands.
I moaned that my wool was slipping, that I was using a child's needle and a bigger one of the same millimetre size. They were a brilliant size for a 6 inch square, just slippy and odd.
Patterns flummox me so my squares were plain.
Today, a parcel arrived.
Inside were a pair of amazing needles. Child size, non slip bamboo and an absolute joy to work with.
A note said they were sent with 'much love from a Woolly Fairy'.
So I want to thank you, Woolly Fairy for such a kind and loving gesture. The needles are at work as I write, the wool no longer slips and knitting is easier.
Bless you for your thoughtfulness. x
