One of the things I love doing on Ravelry is finding things for people. I like to browse the "Patterns" section for folks looking for a pattern and search my heart's content for what I think they are looking for.
When I clicked on the "June Giveaways" this morning it said that a lady was offering up some tangled yarn and that it was for the lady that had asked awhile back for some for her autistic child to untangle. That post made me curious because I never thought about that before. How many times have I had yarn that was so tangled up that in frustration I threw it away! A few times, before I met Beth. (local friend that loves to untangle stuff, but even sometimes she gets some that she can't do) Next time, I get some tangled up yarn, I'll be sure to send it to this person.
Anyways, I searched on the RAK forums to see who it was that wanted untangled yarn and found the person right away. I felt kind of weird and wasn't sure if she would even get this message anytime soon, but told her about the post.
She wrote me back to thank me to telling her about it and offered to buy me a pattern!
I was trying to think of what to write for my June RAK wish and all I could come up with was for a pattern that I have been wanting to make for a friend's daughter, so I told her about it.
Within the hour, the pattern was paid for and sent to me.
I'm super excited and can't wait to knit some of these flowers up. I hope it's not too hard of a pattern but I know if I get stuck, I can always find help on Ravelry. Every time I think I'm stuck and can't figure out a pattern, I just post up my question and within minutes, help is on the way!
After I make the first set, I plan to give one away on Ravelry. Either through the monthly giveaway board or the main RAK board.
Thanks again, kind stranger!
