Just wanted to drop a quick note in about the kindness and goodness of people, especially in times like these, when we are so afraid of terror.
A couple weeks ago when I decided to learn how to crochet, I thought I would ask my little community on FreeCycle/TrashNothing if anyone had any extra yarn that I could use to practice with (before I go out and buy dozens of skeins at $6 a pop haha)
The response? FLOORED ME. I got around 12 people to immediately say, sure! I have some yarn I’m not using, how much would you like? In just a day I wound up with all of this beautiful, free, lush wool yarn in amazing colors. I also have another pile this same size in other neutral colors! Totally stocked for all of my yarn adventures! Wow!!!
I have always had amazing experiences when I ask people for things. That might sound like a silly thing to say, but I’ve found that people are always more than willing to help out and share time and talents. All you have to do…is ask.
Feeling good about the world, as of late. 🙂 What kindness!
