WIP Wednesday – Black


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!

    How cool! I’m so glad you were able to find a kind soul to help you out. And I’m with you on black yarn; I love the look but I can only do it in the middle of the day with really good light. Gray is my fave.
