It's funny how friends slip in and out of our lives. They move away to go to school or to take new jobs and we keep in touch as best we can with our busy lives moving on around us. But then one day they slip back in our lives and with close friends, things pick up right where you left off. You talk of old times and good memories. You drink a few screwdrivers and tell old stories and eat some Chinese. Suddenly when the night is over, you don't want it to be over. You want the good times to keep rolling on and you want to remain a few steps out of reality for a bit. But you get in your car and drive back into the present.....but you thank your lucky stars that you at least have those old memories to hold on to......and crave the next visit when you can make new ones.

Rosina Tolka is the Grand Prize winner of our Six Weeks of Socks for Annie and her family. And this is what she wrote....

I was sooooo excited when I heard your message! Of course, I didn't
believe my son when he told me I had a message, and that I'd won
something. I'm glad that I could help Annie & her family, on top of
being glad to win.

Congrats to Rosina and as always, thanks for your generosity for Annie and her family during this trying time.

Grand Prize Winner!

And the winner is...

Thank you again to everyone who purchased tickets over the past 7 weeks. We were overwhelmed by the response. However in retrospect it wasn't surprising. We have made so many friends in the knitting community. When one knitter needs help, it seems like so many come running. On behalf of Annie and her family we would like to thank you all from the bottom of hearts.

Winner of Week 5, Carol Hurt

Carol Hurt was the Week #5 winner in the Six Weeks of Socks Contest and to her we sent a lovely skein of Cherry Tree Hill skein of sock yarn, colorway, Life's a Beach. She sent this email to us after she won.

Whoo hoo - you just called to say I won a week of socks for the donation to Annie and Jerry. I have to tell you that....24 years ago I was given 2 months to live with cancer around my heart and in my lung. I'm still here! - knitting away and thinking of Annie each and every day. I'm praying for a miracle for Jerry, just as the one I received!!! Annie, take one day at a time.

Thanks to Main Street Yarns & Fibers for helping Annie and Jerry!

Thank you Carol for the positive message of inspiration and for sharing your story with us. You are obviously a real fighter and we loved reading your amazing survival story.

Annie and Gerry leave today for Gerry's treatment in Rochester, NY and we are sending them both well wishes and lots of love as they make this journey. If you would like to leave messages here for them, we will be forwarding them on to Annie.
