Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – Sue Manning, and the Knitting Connection

I met Sue so far back in the day that the mists of time obscure indeed. In that much-earlier era, I was running an organization that gave away books (this was waaaay before Little Free Libraries, people), and she got in touch to see if I ever received donations of knitting books. I certainly did, and I started putting them aside for her and her excellent organization, so similar in design to my own, since I rescued and redistributed books, and she rescued and redistributed yarn (in the form of wonderful knitted things).

I was inspired and heartened to receive a call for donations and newsletter recently – a blast from the past, and a wonderful reminder of what can happen when you are following your heart to do something you love and believe in.

Thank you, Sue, and all the knitters at The Knitting Connection, for all the cozy you put back out into the world!

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three or four times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday, Femme Friday on Friday, and (new for spring 22!) the occasional Sometimes On A. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”) And…as I go through life life life, I will post as I am able, Mabel.
