My faith in the kindness of strangers has also been restored - to often we hear of peoploe having things stolen or they've left things on the train when commuting. I left my cell phone on BART and the gentleman who found it proceeded to call everyone in my phone until he reached someone to tell me that he had it and wanted to return it. (So if I you got a call from a stranger it was him calling you to see if you know me) I received several email messages from folks saying “uh Knitfloozy – you left your cell phone on Bart – here is the contact info for the guy who found it.” I was shocked and amazed cos I never loose my phone - it seems like it should be attached to my head I use it so much. I must have been knitting when it fell outta my pocket - I mean what other reason would I loose my phone. Any who….I got my phone back in a few days and he said he returned it because someone did the same for him a few days ago. So yes there are still kind and wonderful people in the world.
More recently there was a knitter on the Monthly Dishcloth group that I am a part of and lost everything in a fire. She shared this with us because she thought that her fellow knitters would understand her loss. Her family and pets are safe. They are all happy in their rented house until the reconstruction of their old house begins– of all the things they had in the house that her husband missed her hand knit dishcloths when washing the dishes. I mention this because every single person on the list wanted to donate either yarn, dishcloths, needles, etc. I was really touched by the generosity of all the knitters across the country. I to sent her some dishcloths. I’m sure she will have enough to warm her new home.
I have no idea why I've been knitting matching sets of my take on the Ballband Warshrags. I guess it's quick and easy on the train ride to and from work. I suppose that CHP would not look kindly on me knitting while sitting in traffice. I dunno - something about paying attention to the other cars around me and moving along without hitting the person in front of me. Is there a law against knitting while driving? Probably......somebody let me know if you find out if it's illegal to knit and drive and I won't do it....
How was your Easter Celebration? Mine was great - Went to church on Sabbath/Saturday - heard some good music and good words. Went to brunch on Sunday sponsored by a local radio station and ate until...well - let's just say that I didnt feel the need to eat until about 7pm that night....A funny thing happened while I was there. They were giving out movie tickets to a movie I hadn't seen and I tell you some where deep inside my competitive spirit came out and took over. The host announced that there was something that you could find in your purse ladies....a library card. The first person to bring me one gets the movie tickets and the CD. Now Mr. Knitfloozy was laughing and asked why are you looking for your card? You don't have one. Let me give you some background - everytime I go to Costco - I have to get a new card cos I've lost the previous one or if we go shopping - I manage to not have my ATM card with me. Well while the competition got hot - I pulled out my card - ran up the stairs to the stage - in stilletos mind you - pass up another woman trying to pull her card out her wallet rounded a whole table full of women looking for their cards ran up the stairs and claimed my prize. Mr. Knitfloozy was in shock - I actually had a library card in my purse. Don't ask me the last time I used it - but I had it. We had a good laugh over that one and will go to the movies next week. It was really a classic moment in my life. He said he's never doubt me again.
