Way back on Monday, which seems like a lifetime ago, I finished a hat. Another Grateful Dead hat. By pure coincidence, just down the street, most of the Grateful Dead were scheduled to perform a free concert that very same night! Add it all up, hometown crowd, historic venue, 50 years of music and it’s a free ticket…that means it’s a nearly impossible ticket!
I had to try though. You can’t ignore these things when they happen in your own zip code! I set off, to work the line that had been growing, in front of the venue since 6 am, maybe someone would love my handiwork and I could trade it for a ticket.
Actually, it worked out even better than that! Someone I knew had a pair of tickets and offered me his extra just as the doors were opening! Total Score! Except he’s the ‘not a hippie’ kind of hippie. No, Grateful Dead knits will not do in this case. And so, today’s work-in-progress was born!
It’s black! I never knit with black, this is a big deal. I’m bumping an idea to the top of the queue, something I’ve wanted to do for a while but never had the right home for it. Now I do! This is going to be the perfect! It’s a tidy little puzzle that is fitting together just right. I love when I remember the right idea at the right time!
Stay tuned for FO Friday, this promises to be a good one!
