I am thankful for yarn. I'm even more thankful for Provocraft's Knifty Knitters knitting looms. I learned a new hobby at a time when I needed something simple to keep myself occupied. My loom collection has grown to include many sizes and gauges. My yarn stash occasionally gets out of hand but I'm better at not buying yarn because it's there, or there and on sale, but buying yarn to suit a project. I get a great deal of joy from making things for other people and for myself.
Because of yarn and looms I've connected to a whole new group of friends and acquaintances at Ravelry. I've found designers of loom knit patterns, people who like the same types of patterns and yarns that I like, an entire group of special ed. professionals who are kind, creative, and supportive, and opportunities to use this craft to give to others. (Hats for Hunger) There are even groups at Ravelry for fans of TV shows and, yes, I've found the group for Bones.
Eight! Eight more days of folding thankfulness daily.
