Why I Missed Knit Out
I really wanted to go to Knit Out this weekend. We even drove by, and I gazed longingly out the window at the booths and all of those knitters. But it was a big weekend for the kids. Every few months, their music school puts on a show. This weekend they did a Punk Rock show at CBGB. It was AMAZING! All of the kids were wonderful. You almost forgot they were kids. It was especially memorable because CBGB will close permanently in two weeks. When you think of all of the great bands who played here, and all of the people who were inspired by the music and performances they saw here, it is truly tragic.
So while everyone else was out knitting in Union Square, I was hanging out by the mosh pit, rocking out to my kids playing songs I remember well from my formative years.
I did get some knitting done. I finished both scarves I had on the needles for Think Pink. I'll be sending them off sometime this week. I hope they bring a little comfort to a woman facing breast cancer.
I've decided that my Swallowtail Shawl will be my Rhinebeck project. Sometimes projects become bigger in my mind than they are in reality. Yes, this yarn is very fine, and I will need to knit many more repeats than called for, but I do have a month, and the pattern it's self is not too difficult. So Swallowtail it is.
