So I got a nice surprise yesterday when a Thank You card arrived from Fruit Towers. It was really nice to get an acknowledgement anyway, and to have a specially-written note was particularly nice. To explain - in the Submission Form that accompanies your hats when you send them in, they leave a space for donors to put a photo of themselves knitting the hats. However, being the shy type, I sent in a picture of our cat lying on my knitting instead (the last photo I have of me knitting was taken about 20 years ago!), so that's what the note refers to.
The good news is that the Big Knit will be running again this year, so I'm looking forward to making many more hats between now and September. It will all help towards the Yarn Diet, which is going OK for now. More on that later!
