Thanks to the Knitters

After the horror of the mall shooting here in town I have received e-mails from all over the world checking in to make sure that we were not there when it happened. I am so thankful for this. It is amazing to me how small the world really is. Knitters rock! Who else would think about someone they have never met in real life but love that last pair of socks you knit? Simone's boyfriend is a cop btw. And so far it seems like the was very little they could have done. Is seems to me they did a good job getting people out and making sure the had the guy. This is a tight knit community and everyone is banding together. We see too much of this on the news, it has been a surreal experience to have it in our own back yard. Lucky for us we kept the news away from the kids and they seem ok. They know something bad happened but don't really get that it happened in a place we go all the time.
We were lucky we did not know anyone involved and our hearts go out to those family's. We will hold ours a little closer this year and celebrate being together.

p.s. Hubby got a spinning wheel. Don't know what kind yet, he says he got a good deal.

p.p.s. Got some BFL and Merino roving from Miss V the other day. Can I just roll around in the BFL? So soft!

p.p.p.s. Almost done with last knitted gift that needs to be shipped. Then its all Cobblestone all the time till it is done.

That is all.
