Following the third year of a holiday letter comprised
of my (increasingly complex) life via a (increasingly complex) year-in-photographs, I
wondered what it would be like to join the great experiment of 365 days of photographs.
I'm not a photographer,
I'm a writer. I'm a visual thinker, and if ever there was proof that a photo is worth a
thousand words, it would be the story a photo tells me, or in this case, about me.
Follow me on this adventure, where I
learn about photography, my ability to record my life, my dedication to something (I've
never been known for doing anything everyday) in my posts. I've also discovered I'm
learning about time, the history of it, and the odd practice of recording it, measuring it,
turning it into something tangible, and I'll record these explorations in the sidebar.
As always, feel free
to say anything. My experiment is not a spectator sport.

June 27 2009 Beware of All Enterprises

A knit group friend is pregnant with twins and had started a hat, though by following the pattern, it came out the size of the sweater. Being a new knitter, she wasn't sure how to turn it into a sweater, so I have taken on the challenge. I frogged some part of my design with this sweater, well, I can't tell how many times, but it was a lot, and the finishing has taken me much, much longer than I expected.

I didn't even have my glasses on this morning when I got up closer to the afternoon than I expected: I had 15 minutes left until my morning ended. It's okay, I spent that fifteen minutes working on the yoke for the sweater, and frogging it after I decided it was the wrong gauge. Better yet, I didn't count rows when I built the sleeves and after nearly finishing the yoke I finally counted the ribbing and discovered one sleeve was 10 rows too short. Being that it is variegated yarn, I have to be creative, but I am, and I am successful. I dare you to find, when this sweater is finished, which sleeve had been built short. I just dare you.
