Gifted a scarf by a stranger
« on: November 21, 2011, 02:29:26 PM »
I was at a pro football game yesterday.  The lady sitting on the other side of my husband was wearing a scarf crocheted out of beautiful yarn in the colors of our home team.  It really was pretty, very understated colors instead of the usual garish NFL fare.  I commented on how pretty it was, she seemed pleased and said thanks.  About 15 minutes later my husband handed me the scarf.  I assumed she had passed it over so I could look at her handiwork and see how soft it was, but when I looked up she was gesturing to me and saying, "Here, take it!"  I protested, no you don't have to do that, but she said with a smile, "No, I like to make them and I like to give them away.  I want you to have it."  It was so sweet.  I am inspired to pay it forward if I can figure out how.

How nice of her!

You probably made her day, so she decided to make yours.  ;D
Just because someone is offended that does not mean they are in the right.
