    i will reblog this every time

    I worked with a lady that came into work one day with no hair. No one mentioned it, no one talked about it. She was wearing a bandana so we all knew she was bald.

    But I have ADD, and not so great control of my impulsiveness. Finally, near the end of the night I asked. “So… can I ask, what happened to your hairs?”

    She smiled and hugged me. I was the only person with the cajones to ask. “My best friend is pregnant, already has a 4 yr old, and was diagnosed with cancer, and her boyfriend left her because it was too much. So I’ve been helping her out, being supportive. And I promised her if she started losing her hair I would shave my head too.”

    “Last night she called me, crying because her hair was falling out in clumps. I told her I’d be there in 10 minutes. She shaved me first, then I her.”

    It’s the most supportive thing she could think to do.

    I just started crying.

Ho man!

Worth a reblog for a wonderful resource.
I was trying to match up the names with some of the pictures and I couldn’t work out a few. Whilst looking I found THIS LINK to the Ravelry page with a lot more information (scroll to the bottom for English).

  9.   “A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform  packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, eleven o’clock. Harry looked behind him and saw a wrought-iron archway where the barrier had been, with  the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it.
      Smoke from the engine drifted over the heads of the chattering crowd, while cats of every color wound here and there between their legs. Owls hooted to one another in a disgruntled sort of way over the babble and the scraping of heavy trunks.”

    Happy September 1st, y’all!

    Speaking of Tosh, I just finished my Whippoorwill shawl using Fjord for the main color. I think this is one of the best things I’ve ever made, and I’m really sad it’s not cool enough to wear it yet. 

    It blocked out to be even longer than expected, which is why I recruited my coworker and her longer arms to model for me.

  15. I want to go out and spend a bunch of money on yarn. Not even to knit with, just to look at and touch.
