It was so cold in San Rafael today, my apprentice , The Russian put on my pink hat, put on my red rubber raincoat ,she blew on her fingers and still it was too cold.We sewed up 3 yarnbombs at Dharma Trading. It looked like a knitting playground. I had forgotten how much fun it can be to sew up knitting up on a pole. Last month I had dumped out all my colors of handspun yarn and put them in rows and knit long rainbowish pieces. We had 3 of these pieces in our backpacks and they made a warm display. I like how the turquoise ruffle on this piece looks like calligraphy.
As we were sewing a young man strolled by and smiled approvingly. “Thrifty” he remarked.
” Thrifty!?” I looked at The Russian. “What does thrifty mean?”
She looked at me and said” I don’t know, I am not a representative young person!”
Afterword we went to Royal Grounds and had hot chocolate and a peanut butter cookie.
