Pen Pal Love

In addition to knitting, I am a huge fan of mail art and letter writing. I love the entire process of sitting down with beautiful stationery, a lovely pen and sending a thoughtful note from a friend far away. I have pen pals whom I’ve never met in real life and I have friends Ive known for years who also appreciate the gift of a handwritten letter.

One of the new hobbies I’ve picked up along the way is listening to podcasts while knitting and writing letters, so it was such a delight to see that this week’s episode of This American Life was all about pen pals!  Please take a listen and think about dropping a note, a postcard a teabag, anything to someone. It’s such a thrill finding a nice note amongst the bills and catalogs. And it’s even better knowing how much it will mean to the recipient!
