Have you ever been RAK'd? RAK'd stands for *Random Act of Kindness.* I love RAK'ing, and being RAK'd -- and I believe if more people practiced it our world would be so much better!
I know I still have the recent CGOA ChainLink Conference to finish blogging about (I'll be backfilling when time permits). One of the entries missing is the one about what I purchased at the Conference. Honestly, I didn't purchase much. With Mr. Dee's layoff seven months ago, splurging is something I really can't do at the moment. -- but I had purchased an Etimo crochet hook to surprise a friend with here in Connecticut.
That's right, I RAK'd a friend. She couldn't make the Conference, crochets like a mad-woman for various charities (she's such an inspiration!), and unfortunately suffers badly from arthritis in her hands. With the hook having a soft cushion I thought the Etimo crochet hook would be perfect for my friend; I wanted her to try the hook,hoping it would offer her some comfort to keep crocheting. She was delighted with my RAK'ing her, and better yet, she loves her new Etimo crochet hook!
So imagine my surprise when my postal carrier delivered a mysterious box and inside was a complete set of Etimo crochet hooks! -- For me! From my "Fairy Crochet-Mother/Goddess!" OMG -- how cool is that?!!! Thank you Fairy Crochet-Mother/Goddess!!"
