Friday, July 9 was a fun day for our knitting project, berkeleyside.com posted an article with 2 very nice pictures and there was a little insult posted on cbslocal blogs.propero.com, although I’m not sure if it was an insult to berkeleyside or to us. I started the blog to document the knitting but now people may be seeing pictures and never actually see the pieces. But then lots more people see the knitting than the blog. Or sort of see the knitting just out of the corner of their eye. I know a lot of tourists come to the Cheese Board, I hope it adds to the Berkeley experience.
A few different folks came up and asked “What are you doing?” Well I thought, I am sewing this knit sock onto this pole.But I wanted to say something a little less idiotic.
“I’m making art and putting it up on the street so that people can see it just as they walk around in their daily lives”
“Ah, you are beautifying the neighborhood” they say knowingly, like this is a common activity.I think it looks prettier.
