Does Athens have secret guerrilla knitters? Jake and I saw this when we were out and about on Court Street last weekend. That’s a great color on the yarn, isn’t it? I don’t recall seeing a seam on the fabric, so I’m not sure how they secured it around the tree. The only ways I know to make a tube like that is knitting in the round, seaming with a needle or grafting. Can you imagine standing there and kitchene-ing a tube closed, probably in the dark, cold night? I hate doing it for socks! I must have been quickly seamed or something, but I couldn’t see where the artist did that.
Things have actually been rather exciting around here on the knitting front. I have TWO finished objects to show you, but left my camera at a knitting friend’s house almost two weeks ago. She seems to share the same memory affliction and has forgotten to bring it to the knitting group. I finished the Talisman Shawl this weekend and then whipped up a quick slouchy beret that I don’t have a title for yet. I’ll hopefully be getting the camera back tomorrow though and will regale you with photos of the FOs. I did take the shawl to the knitting group tonight and it was much admired, to my great appreciation. Only fellow knitters can really appreciate a lace shawl to its fullest extent. They even gave me suggestions on how to wear it!
