I haven't touched my knitting needles in several years.
And hardly a crochet hook.
Today, I was required to wait 30 minutes before I was allowed to leave the waiting room at my allergists' office after having injections.
With bright blue crochet hook and warm orange wool in hand, I attempted to crochet a bit during my wait.
A kind woman saw me struggling.
Oh...I don't know how to crochet, but I want to make a little bow.
Do you want to single crochet?
She cast on stitches and showed me how to do a thing or two.
The nurse called her into the honeycomb rooms behind the door for her appointment.
Said the nurse, Whatcha doing? Spreadin' joy?
We both smiled.
I watched her disappear behind the door and sat and crocheted a little bit of orange heaven.
Sometimes a stranger has a thing or two to teach you.
