I just thought I'd share this story.
If any of you have been to freecycle, it's a website where you can go on there and say "WANTED: Crochet, Knitting, craft stuff." and someone can contact you if they have these things for free to give to you. You can also make offers to people of things you want taken off your hands. Usually, you have to go pick it up if you're the WANTED person.
So, none of you really know this, but I was diagnosed with Evans Syndrome back in 2002, which is an extremely rare autoimmune disease. I've gone through chemo twice for it. NOW I'm getting told I may have Rheumatoid Arthritis. I'm jobless, and I WAS searching, but now I'm giving up becuase of my collective illnesses. At the moment, I just want to get better.
I posted something about this and about how I loved doing crafts and if there was anything they wanted to get off their hands, I'd gladly accept it. I came into correspondence with Nance, a retired lady, who said she'd look through her stuff and BRING it to me.
Today I look outside and there's a huge garbage bag full of 30 different gauges of knitting needles and crochet needles, 10 different types of yarn, 10 different kits.. I'm jsut amazed at humanity right now.
What a nice lady.
