Whats up good people who are bored and swing through to read my blog??? Well today the unthinkable happened… I ran out of yarn!!!! There is a back story to this but just know that I have reached an early senior citizen low.
SHORT BACK STORY
Every fall and winter I stock up on yarn and make scarves for the homeless people I see on the street or in the subway stations. I hand them scarves with a cup of coffee or something to eat. Well every year I end up making more and more
BACK TO NOW
Just in the past 2 months I have made OVER 30 scarves. I have mailed off 2 boxes to a wonderful woman in Chattanooga who is handing them out to the black community there. I sent a box with my mom this past weekend and I am making random ones for friends and family who ask. I can pump out 2 or 3 scarves a week. I always pack yarn when I go to work. I packed two big things of yarn on Monday morning and yesterday I finished them both. Do you know what happened after??? I had no idea what to do?? I felt so lost!!! The hell?? My life has come to Yarn and hallmark movies!!!! I have reached a new geriatric low!!! Like I was LEGIT confused with how to spend my time!!! I just sat staring at my hands like “uhhhh well… Hmmm. What do we do now??” I have a DRAWER full of yarn that I am ITCHING to dig into tomorrow when I get home!!! Im having yarn withdrawals y’all. I know some time tomorrow Im going to go to Michaels and buy some more yarn. Whyyy?? Because the little boy that I nanny wants one AND someone else has requested a box of scarves for the homeless shelter she helps with.
You guys have no idea how much joy this brings me!!! Knowing that I am sharing my love with the world by giving out a little bit or warmth. All are made with nothing but LOVE! Every year I burn out really fast but the fact that I have had such a great turn out this year has kept the fire going. I do want to branch out and and maybe get a small group of knitters and crocheters to help create and distribute. Im trying to keep up!!! If you know anyone who can help out. HIT ME UP!!!!!
