This is mostly a knitting blog. Sometimes pictures of things I've made, sometimes not. I'm a guy who knits, I usually attend a men's stitch 'n' bitch on Monday nights, and I prefer natural fibres to artificial ones. I have a love-hate relationship with bamboo yarns: I love what they can do and how they look, I hate how they are made. I've been knitting since about 2003, though I really didn't get into it until 2005, while convelescing with a broken leg. I must have discovered something good, 'cause I'm still knitting years later.

Friday night, rather than going to my regular knit night at my LYS, I went to see and hear Franklin Habit at the Common Cod Fibre Guild. I had heard him before, a few years ago, and had enjoyed his sense of humour, and thought it would be a fun thing to go see him again.

So I packed some knitting and met up with a friend and went to hear Franklin. He was engaging and funny, and spoke eloquently on Victorian and Edwardian patterns.
Franklin speaking, Harry and Delores are behind him

After speaking, he took many questions from the audience, signed books, and posed for pictures.
We called this "One and a Half Italians"

It was an evening well spent, and I'm very glad I got a chance to see him speak.

By the way, Harry is wearing a Red Sox cap!
