Hello & Welcome
to my 19th episode of the
KWH iPad Show!
Today’s feature is fibre-friendly
fondness for neighbourly kindness :)
Hey… remember a few weeks ago, when our neighbour surprised me with a bagful of assorted yarn? Well, now look!
Another neighbour (an especially friendly clerk from our local Safeway store) has knit a red vest/slipper set and packed it in a canvas “Safeway” shopping bag with 3 pairs of 5 mm straight knitting needles, plus 3 big balls of gold/pink fuzzy-tufty fashion yarn! Such a sweet surprise :) The canvas bag will be a handy tote for knitting projects. But what would you suggest to knit with yarn like this? I’m not sure what to make from it…
Yarn is always fun :)
But then, this past weekend was moving day for our dear “snow angel” neighbour Randy. Now their house is empty and I’m feeling a bit sad. Randy cared about his neighbours and was like a staple in the community :) We’re blessed to have known him and very thankful for his diligent effort to clear the snow from several neighbouring driveways, including ours. There were days when the snow just kept coming… and so did Randy—frequently ploughing our place 2-3 times in one day!!! The weather was harsh, but Randy’s heart was warm. He knew hubby was on crutches and I’d be the one shovelling. So he definitely helped make our winters more bearable! Shovelling is okay and can even be fun (fresh air, sniffling neighbourly interaction, frozen faces, etc.). But y’know it can really cut into my knitting time ;) So instead, it was my pleasure to knit special gifts of appreciation <3
A quick search through my blog found 6 posts mentioning Randy… 6!!!

Now those days are gone… But lo and behold, look what I found! A snowful blast-from-the-past video of the last time Randy ploughed our driveway (dated March 2nd, 2015). How amazing for it to have survived all these months on my iPad! Who could have know that this glimpse of him in action would bid a fitting farewell… We’ll miss seeing them around the neighbourhood, but that’s life… God bless Randy and his wife in their new home <3
