Just a quick blog today to remind you to leave your RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) comments from last week. Remember, we’re all trying to make December our month to go out of our way to pass on kindnesses (or “Pass the Cheer” as Starbucks advises.) I’ll announce the contest winner (drawn from all of today’s comments) on next Monday’s blog if I don’t blog again before then. I’ll have lots to tell you about when I get back!
I want to wish every one of you a blessed holiday season, with lots of special times with your families. (And a Merry Christmas!) We’ll have a whopping Sneak Up for you when things get back to normal after the holidays. (Probably the first full week of January.) The new Dream in Color colors arrived in Classy, as well as all of the Dream in Color Baby Lace. 🙂 Plus, the Cherry Tree Hill DK weight one-of-a-kind colorways that we’ll have on sale for you, Romi’s gorgeous earrings and pins, Mountain Colors Bearfoot, and all of the things I listed in the last blog. Ohhh, it’s gonna be fun!
On the last shopping trip out before Christmas I managed two RAKs. First, I helped a woman in front of me in the queue at the supermarket with her shopping- she then helped the woman in front of HER (talk about paying it forward!). Then on my way out, there was a homeless guy who often sits on the route from the supermarket to the bus stop. I went back into the shopping mall- heavy bags and all- and got him a burger, a couple of apple pies, and a cup of tea from MacDonalds. I’d always rather give food than money- following in my Mum’s footsteps. I wouldn’t usually buy as much food as I did, but it was very very cold, and it was nearly Christmas.
OMG Sheri! Congrats on the Vogue Knitting mention. I received my copy today and just started to study it here at work. When what do I see but your name on the first page I read! Of course, I have a bad, bad feeling this will make it even harder to score the Wollmeise. 🙁 😉
Merry Christmas! Belatedly. 🙂 And Happy New Year!
My RAK is in the form of my time/talent this week. I started knitting a scarf for a friend of mine on MSG duty (those guys who stand around at the embassies). He told me that he’d be more than willing to pay for it, and I said nonsense! Doesn’t everyone deserve something warm and handknit when they are away from home? Maybe I should do Socks for Soldiers this year.
