I am so thankful you took the time to send me your thoughts. I can not begin to tell you how badly i feel about yesterday. I am sorry, and truthfully just sick about what happened. I left here feeling really bad, and very sad. As i told my family last night, that is the thing that the robber took from me....trust.
I am sure you were embarrassed, as was i. No, i don't see color of skin....and yes, you are right we did carry on a conversation about knitting....and i sensed that you were here with purpose. Then as i said, you seemed to be watching me more that looking at product and frankly that made me more that nervous. You see the guy who robbed the shop 18 months ago also had a lengthy conversation with me, i had seen him in the store before. So there you go.
I do apologize to you. I would like to get to know you better and help you make socks. Really i would. As a matter of fact i would like to offer you a Tuesday night knitting class on me. I thought about that last night and didn't even have your name or a way to contact you. So i thank you for giving me the opportunity to apologize and make you this offer. Perhaps when i get to know you better i will explain to you better about my former experience and maybe you will forgive my actions.
Please give me a call or drop in so that we can begin afresh.
Regards, CathiSo I think I'm going to take her up on this offer. It wont be tomorrow or anything I work nights at Starbucks so knit night activities are kinda hard sometimes and I'm still working over the embarresment that the situation caused but hopefully we can meet up soon. Even if its just for a cup of coffee somewhere so we can just talk *and knit of course*...I might be able to do that sooner than go to her shop. I don't want to be around a large group of people if they are the same people that were in her shop yesterday I don't think I can handle the staring.
But I got a email starting her feels and saying she was sorry and that's all I really wanted out of all this.
