Knitting saved me
Yesterday my 67 year old mom's house was broken into. They just kicked in the back door and took mostly jewellery and booze. She was absolutely frantic when she got home (thank goodness she was out at the time). We went over to her place last night to lend a hand and give support. It's not the monetary value but the stuff had a lot of sentimental value which I think is worse. Luckily, as I was running out the door I grabbed my knitting bag (thanks to the Harlot) and took it with me. There's a lot of waiting at crimes scenes. It's not like CSI at all! I cast on a sock and began knitting to stay occupied and sane as my poor mom began to discover exactly what the bastards took. When she settled down I told her about the KAL and some of my fellow knoggers or blitters (whatever you get when you combine knitting and blogging). Thanks to all of you I managed to keep her occupied with all your names, stories and swatches as the cops dusted for prints and photographed the wreckage. So many thanks for being there for me and my mom. You will always be welcome!
