Finally...Knitting Nirvana

Unlike my favourite group, U2, I have found what I've been looking for. Yes, dammit, after tens of hours searching the net for a knit pattern for a poncho that my daughter is pleased with, and all thanks to http://faerycrafty.blogdrive.com/ The most comprehensive poncho list I have ever seen. Wow, talk about dedication, you must check this out. Ya gotta love knitters. Come on, really, they are some of the most helpful, kind people. Last year, when I started knitting the charm bag from the SNB book, I bought the wrong needles and the woman at the knitting store took off all my work and put them back on the proper needles. And aren't they always willing to give free advice? What about the woman in the Knitlit book who owns the store and when she is too busy to stay she leaves the store open with a sign to take what you need and leave a cheque. Where do you find people this kind and honest? I don't know but it does make you think doesn't it? I mean which came first the chicken or the egg? Are people who knit naturally like this or does the actual "act" of knitting restore something in you, something left over from childhood about always being nice to people and to share and help. Too be honest, I have yet to meet a knitter I really dislike. Not that there is a lot of people on that particular list but truly, most people who share the love of this craft with me are, on the whole, fairly nice. I mean there may be a few I don't "connect" with but I still respect them and certainly don't hate them. Maybe there is something to this "knitting for peace" movement. Hey, I'm getting just a tad too philosophical for this time of night. I gotta go to bed, tomorrow is go get a new hairstyle day (how interesting is that with four women in the family?) Goodnight and Peace Be with You.
