This is the first blanket the Charity Log Cabin Knitting group has finished. It only took us about 2.5 years. Interestingly enough, after I bitched here yesterday, I found a note from the woman that said she'd mailed the blankets. She said the envelope got ripped up and finally returned to her and she'd mail them out again. The note is almost 30 days old, so I'm not holding my breath.
The other three, possibly, four recent losses also turned up found after I wrote a rather adamant e-mail to the group. So, we've only had two or three blankets really stolen. Which is still rather sad. Ann at Sheep Shots wrote about people vandalizing and stealing from food banks. What is the world coming to? I can understand stealing food to eat, but truckloads of frozen chicken? Give me a break.
On the upside, someone was looking for someone to give odd bits of yarn to and she said she send them to me. It's always fun to get the odd balls of this 'n' that to make into baby things or striped blankets. And I've read in several blogs of knitters gifting others so I'm starting to regain my faith in the fiber community.
And then I wonder, why do we jump to measure a community of people by the ones that haven't been "nice"? Why not always jump to measure by those that have done good?
