I am finding the whole social network thing more and more intriguing every day. If you would have asked me a year ago if I'd be on Facebook, I would have laughed at you. Six months ago I scoffed at Twitter. Today I am involved on both.
The other day, someone who I don't know outside of Facebook sent me a note there. It turns out that he has a new rabbi coming to his temple and found out that she is a knitter. He wanted my opinion about what I thought would be the best yarn for him to give her as a welcome gift. He's knits lace almost exclusively, but was wondering whether he should go with DK or maybe sock yarn or??????
So, someone I have never met is asking me what he should buy someone he's never met. What a hoot! How cool is it that the little snippets of information gleaned on Facebook allowed him to feel comfortable enough to ask me? And that I could give him an answer that made sense?
We live in interesting times.
