No I haven’t migrated to Korea. My next door neighbors this summer in Sacramento, who are not Asian, put this up to separate their walkway from the courtyard of my building. This makes more sense than it appears because the neighbors are doing work on the walkway and Sacramento is very multi-cultural. Since the neighbors are from some former Soviet bloc country and their English is a bit skimpy, I’m not sure if the store was out of caution tape in some other language or if they just thought that it only came this way. Either way it makes me happy that one can purchase caution tape in multiple languages in an American city and everyone still understands why it’s there.
I am trying to focus on things that make me happy right now. The opera is very needy right now and I am working just as hard on a single opera as I did last year at this time on 3 jobs. It feels like it will never end and I will just go on and on doing Carmen and waiting for the election to be over forever. This too shall pass, I know, but meanwhile, a few other things that make me happy:
My local high school has a community garden. The students grow vegetables and flowers, compost, weed, and all the other things it takes to have a great garden. The vegetables are available for needy families and the work counts toward the students community service requirement. Win/win
I started a new project. I’m calling the Runway Sweater because it’s just an oversized tee but outside of Ravelry and Knitty, I’ve only seen them in the fashion rags, usually coming down a runway and costing $$$$. The yarn is Lisa Souza Polworth silk, color “Wild Things”. I was hoping that with big needles, size 11, in garter stitch, I could get the whole sweater out of 1 skein, but I was forced to admit part way that there was no way and ordered another skein. The yarn is quite beautiful and has a lovely hand.
