Kindness, Giving Away Kindness and Blogging in Alphabetical Order

Blogging in Alphabetical order brings us to the letter K today.  In the two previous rounds of blogging in Alphabetical Order I've blogged about Kindness and knitting for the letters K.  I really didn't come up with any new word for this, the 3rd round of doing so.

Do you know a knitter, or a crocheter?  If you could give a yarn boutique like the pretty one above.  That would be a wonderful act of kindness.  Give it for nothing specific...in that it's not Easter, or Christmas, or someone's Birthday or Mother's Day etc.  Just give it, as an act of kindness.  Trust me.....it will be well received.  

Craft a note to go with your yarn boutique to spread the kindness yet further.  In your note say something like I just wanted to share some kindness from me to you......and suggest you do the same, by using this yarn to knit/crochet something you can donate to someone in need..........yet again sharing more kindness.  

Maybe you have favorite charities you could include in your note to help the person think of charities or to have something to select from?


Maybe you would prefer something like above.  Spotted this on Facebook and thought it worth a share.  You could print this and include it with your yarn boutique.

If you do anything like this, please let me know.  Take a picture of your arrangement with your yarn, or your note...I'll share it here on blog to help encourage others to reach out in similar fashion.  If you would prefer not to include your name with the post, simply let me know.  I know some of you big hearted people are a bit shy.  Contact me by leaving a comment here on the post, or by using the contact form in the right side bar, or by emailing me at sandycrochet@gmail.com

**The counts on our progress bars are current. All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

  1. One of the craft stores should take up this banner and offer yarn bouquets to be purchased. There are several people I'd send one to. :-) I'd love to receive one too. They are so pretty and useful.

  2. That yarn bouquet is so nice! It would last longer than flowers and the yarn would help keep someone warm. Great idea! I also like the saying.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
