Doing Good





Last week, Anke requested hats for her friend who is facing health challenges.  Within the hour, I dug through my yarn stash and cast on a hat.  This month is a gratitude month, a month of thanksgiving.  I can easily get lost on tiny worries, big worries, serious worries, and silly worries.  However, as I knit this hat, each and every stitch, I wove in good thoughts and  healthy thoughts for my unknown recipient.

She is receiving a hat, I have received so much more.

Peace, contentment, doing what I love and sharing that with others. Tomorrow I'll be posting my hat to Anke and sending lots of good wishes for her friend.

  14. You are sending so much more than a hat. Not only will the recipient receive a hat, she will feel the calm, the warm thoughts, and the healing you put into it.
