Okay, THAT was unexpected

I finally had a moment where I thought "No, I am not a total fuckup.  I might be doing something good with my life."

There was an article in UNC's newspaper about the little free libraries around town.  I love them, because I read things I never would have otherwise, and pass on books to the community.

I was reading the article to Kent while he was washing dishes.  And I choked when I got to this line:

"During the winter, an anonymous 'yarn fairy' even left knitted scarves with the books"

(I always attach a note to use or share, and sign it The Yarn Fairy)

That's me.  That's ME!  Holy shit, this means my scarves (crocheted, damnit!) found homes.  I knew some had, but to read that....

See Alicia.  See Alicia start crocheting like a fiend.

I feel like I just got my fucking superhero name.

Thank you! It started after I saw a project where people in Canada were leaving scarves on benches.

Well, and the spousebeast's endless nagging about getting yarn OUT of the house.

I never thought anyone would really notice, ya know?
