And that’s what it’s all about

1. The little silk chemo cap I made arrived where it was going and I received a note from my beautiful relative along with a picture of her wearing it. She made my day.

2. I wrote a little while back about Sue Nelson and XRX’s fundraiser to help pay her medical expenses: they were raffling off their Great American Afghan, a part of their company’s history, in hopes of her being able to continue her experimental treatment for her cancer.

The winner of that raffle was announced tonight. And Angela Tennant, the winner, had one request.

That the afghan be given to Sue as a comfort and a get-well wish, helping her feel warmed in body and spirit.

I don’t know Angela Tennant, but this I can say: tonight she declared herself a friend to us all.

and that makes her even more special in my book. I think this is her( or H3Dakota on Ravelry.
Not too many people would think past the “I won” and contribute once again.

totally cool — perhaps that last “a” on her name can be dropped for today — she is indeed an “Angel”

I know it’s been said, but knitters everywhere seem to be most generous people!

That is such a wonderful thing to do, and so inspiring. Makes me want to find someone to be generous to!

Go Angela! What a thoughtful request!

Likewise, the Knight won a raffle last night and quietly asked that the item be raffled off again next weekend to raise more funds for the person in need. No, it wasn’t a beautiful Granny Square afghan this time; he was smart enough to bring that one home when he won it! (And yes, he’s one of those lucky sorts who wins often.)
