I received a wonderful note on Ravelry the other day from a woman named Adriann. It seems she's a crocheter, and so far I'm the only New York-based crocheter she's seen on Ravelry. She offered me her extra copy of the 2008 Crochet-a-Day calendar if I was willing to pick it up from her job, which just happens to be near my apartment.
I've really been wanting the calendar, so I said yes. This morning I went and picked it up from her, and left while she clocked in.
Sometimes the universe is a wonderful place.
