The last few days, though, I've been looking 'round at the unfinished projects and deciding which to tackle first -- I think the Gathered Pullover from last summer. Then the Tangled Yoke Cardigan and Nola's denim pants with a second sock and a laceweight Alpaca shawl/scarf I haven't told you about yet . . . In fact, I think I'll take that one with me while I travel back and forth on the BC ferry today, taking the girls back to the other side (a good 4 hours of knitting time!)
Even while I wasn't knitting, though, I was travelling with a knitter's eye. For example, I spotted this poster in front of the National Portrait Gallery in London -- part of their current advertising campaign encouraging viewers to "take a second look" at famous personalities via portraits that offer us a different perspective. This is a poster using the 1st Earl Kitchener as an example with the unexpected revelation being that such a military and "manly" man also engaged in such domestic pursuits as knitting socks.
We knitters! As The Yarn Harlot often postulates, if we ruled the world . . .
