Soooooooo glad you are okay and how neat is it that a knitter
picked you up? Not a bad way to end an ordeal. And about being dumped....how long would you have agonized over dumping your SO? You lucked out. The jerk didn't recognize the wonder of you and made the move, you didn't have to lift a finger. Anyone that doesn't see the goddess that is us needs to move on, and make it as easy as possible on us when they do. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Drink some OJ, take some asprin. Hope the nasty cold is history when your read this.
Oh, ps. Send the yarn.
