Happenstance



This is Leona.
We met today in a waiting room.
She is knitting for Marjorie, a relative with ovarian cancer.
I told her I'd ask for prayers for her Marjorie.
She was so thankful
I know where to get prayers.
She was knitting with pink, plastic circulars
She said she's had them for ages
I want those needles
anyone???
Do you know where to get those pink plastic circulars?

Hello--found you via Emily @ Yarn Miracle.

I have a pair of Susan Bates circulars that are black and pink plastic, size 17. The join is 26" and each needle is 6.5".

I got them at a Stitch-N-Pitch night when I lived in Arizona and don't think I've ever used them. If you want them, they're yours! Send me an e-mail: ktdid2@comcast.net.....and will also send healing thoughts for Leona's Marjorie.

What an amazing friend, to make such a beautiful afghan :)I will definitely send a prayer or two.

And, as far as bright pink needles go, I know that Susan Bates has a ton of bright pink, blue, and purple needles.

Prayers and healing thoughts for Marjorie. Leona is knitting a gorgeous blanket and I'm sure Marjorie will get a lot of comfort from it.

You guys are the best. But I knew that. THing is Leona doesnt do computers, except to email. She is just trusting that folks will pray for her Marjorie...if only she could see your comments. But good begets good, so expect great things each one of you and thanks.

Saying prayers for Marjorie! Are the needles maybe Denise interchangeable? I have the grey set but I know that there are pink ones and everyone loves them.
