Attic Yarn??
Here is a strange story:
I was cleaning my house one day when I saw a dent in the wall. I got curious and used a hammer to chip off the dry wall (Very carefully) and discovered a hidden staircase!!! I loved adventures in my books for I was . I climbed up and discovered a small attic. Nothing was in there except a box. I opened it up and discovered a bunch of yarn!! It was the perfect quality and I was so happy. I was running low on yarn and now I had a lot! The adventure did not stop there! I found a note on the bottem. This is what it said.
Dear person,
I am very old and about to die. I wish to give this to a knitter, but none in the family. To whoever finds this box I hid, please give it to a knitter.
NO concloser! I asked who lived here before me and it turned out that an old knitter used to live there two familes behind me! Well that is it!

What a fantastic story!

I once found an extra door way into my hall when I took the paneling off the walls in my old house in Houston. But no treasures other than improved air flow throughout the house.

That story is WAY cool! It is so good that it sounds like a great way to start a novel where the main charcter is a knitter.

I never thought about that! I am a writer, but I have never been published yet. If I use it, I will most certainly give you credit! I did find some bugs, but none were black widows (Thank goodness) so I was alright.

That is cool. And sort of creepy. Gave me goosebumps to read it. You must definitely write a book now. Please let us know what you make with the yarn (and if the object comes to life and starts haunting you! ).

Aww, shucks. You wouldn't have to give me credit. Just send me a signed copy of the book!

Did this actually happen??? Sounds creepy, mysterious AND a great opening for an awesome book on going back in time with knitting!!!!!!!!!!

Imagine someone who finds this box of yarn and then goes back in time whenever she picks up those needles and starts to knit with them and the mystery yarn. Where will she end up next?? Will she meet the original owner? How will she return to the present? WILL she want to return??? The story never ends...................

It's hard to believe it's real - it sounds like the sort of thing you'd dream about. Possible, but improbable. Post a picture of the yarn - we'd love to see your new stash!

Absolutely a great story! I'd have had to find someone to go up those stairs with me - preferrably in front of me!!
