Here’s another field trip report. This one has a guest.
David from sweaterproject.org was in town so did my best to show him a good time. How do I know him? We went to college together. Way back when I was trying to design with woven fabric and he was making chainmail and neither of us knit. Ok, I do have a sweater from that era. It was the first thing I ever made, (that’s right no scarf, no washcloth, started with a sweater) but I don’t think it would persude anyone that I was a knitter. I have advice for any of you in college or about to be in college–choose your friends wisely, if you’re lucky they’ll be there forever.
Friday we hit up Weaving Works. I bought yarn for a “coming soon” project. Sunday we headed out to Brainbridge Island and went to Churchmouse. How can you not go to Churchmouse? There’s a ferry ride, great yarn, ice cream nearby and now there’s wine too! At Churchmouse I was very good and resisted the Handmaiden. Someday I’ll have some of that…someday.
Anyway if there’s one thing I’ve learned from reading David’s blog it’s that nothing generates hits like a picture of a boy in a kilt.
