I love that idea. I do try to live by it and teach my children to also. Certainly, the holiday season is as good a reason as any to try to be a little nicer. Point in case–I had to drop Gracie off at school early this morning. Packing the boys in the car at 7:20am is not fun but the promise of a fresh bagel helps! When it came time to pay the $5.84, I found I had just $3.00 in my wallet. With the kitchen out of commission, we have been eating out a lot. I scraped together some change, offered a priority mail stamp or Chuck E Cheese tokens. They weren’t happy. Not even smiley. A very kind woman gave me a dollar. With the couple of quarters in my jacket I was able to overpay!!
With that thought in mind, I made just a couple of hats for Margene and Carole’s Knit Unto Other’s KAL. I enjoy charity knitting. Our local guild contributes to many charities near and far. For me, they make perfect inbetween projects and are terrific for using up odds and ends. Lamb’s Pride Bulky knits up pretty quickly and I used Manos, Serendipity and Soho bits I had left.
Speaking of giving…my Better Pal package arrived. It was wrapped so nicely. It is unfortunate that the picture I took of the gifts isn’t as nice. I am no Cara! Inside was some lovely Noro–a skein of Kureyon and Silk Garden, a Lantern Moon Needle cozy and a Knit Lit book. Thanks Better Pal. Blossom from Whispering Pine was my Pal and she did a great job! It was especially nice to try some yarns that are new to me! The Artyarns and Drops are in the queue. And Noro is always appreciated. Thanks again Blossom!
