I am grateful for Ann, who reminded me that maybe only 1 in 10,000 people can mend a gaping hole in a cashmere glove. Maybe fewer than that can do it while the glove owner is still wearing it. Skillz, I haz them.

I had both an awesome and awful day, but at the end of it I am certain of these things:
- Knitting professionals work damn hard to give customers a positive experience.
- I really love it when I can use my knitting ninja skills to make a customer's day better.
- Knitting is an industry, one that deserves to be taken seriously.
- Knitting is family, community, livelihoods, industry, memories, connections, friendship, and sometimes even salvation, but it is never, ever, ever "just yarn".
