I stayed up until midnight last night to read the Eastbay Express article by Rachel Swan about our streetcolor knitting. It is a very good article, I was filled with happiness. Read it at http://www.eastbayexpress.com/ebx/world-of-streetcolor/Content?oid=2003756. When someone starts to make a story out of your life it can sound like you know what you are doing which is nice since you so rarely feel like you know what your doing. I mostly just feel extremely delightfully, obsessively, compelled to get up every morning and start feverishly spinning and knitting while still in my Pajamas.
I wanted to go out to Sonoma and put knitting all over the Sonoma Square. I went out today to look over the Square and there are no regular poles! Just extra big concrete ones. Which looks very nice if course, but poor for yarn bombing. I was with my partner so we went to the Boulangerie Bakery and I knit and ate many cookies. These 2 pieces are from the bookstore and a shady stop sign. The blitz of Sonoma will have to wait.
We did go to The Girl and The Fig and we were delirious with pleasure over the butter almond cake.It was hard to drive away and leave my pieces there all alone and know I won’t see them again. That has been a great thing about working on Berkeley, getting to see the poles on my little drives. I didn’t have The Russian with me.It’s hard to put up the pieces without The Russian , I am so lucky to have that person. I just kept wanting to stop and go and sit down on a park bench and drink my tea and knit.
