Knitting in the Capital

Hey all,
I am in Washington DC this week for a science literacy conference. Fun stuff. I am meeting up with a friend I haven't seen in years, since I was in the Peace Corps in Thailand. Loooooonnnnnnggggggg time ago. Anyway, She has a baby, so I made her a little hat. I used swiss darning to put her name on it, inspired by the "geek" baby hat I made at my last class at Yarn Garden. Thanks to Leyla for the advice.

Also, I am going to be on a game show tuesady night (August 1st) on the GameShow Network. It is called "Starface" and is hosted by Danny Bonaduce. It airs 6:30 pacific time, and 9:30 eastern. Check your local listings for time and station.

I am currently knitting a pretty little thing called the Brea Bag. LOVE IT!!!! I have all the pieces and must assemble it and add a handle. The color I am using is cranberry-like. Can't wait to use it!

Oh, the craziest thing happened on Friday at home. My neighbor across the street heard a loud noise (we heard it too) and she went into her backyard to see what happened. Her neighbor to the back had driven his car through their shared wall, and into her POOL!!!!! Her housekeeper jumped in and rescued the older man who was driving. He was in shock. The fire dept. showed up and all was ok, except that Christine had a Honda Accord in her pool. Saturday morning a giant crane came
to haul it out. Lots of people, the news crews, etc. Here is a pic of the car "flying" over Christine's house and into the street. It was a sight to see! Her pool is a mess, and it looks like they will drain it and repair it. Bummer, since this is prime pool weather!

Hope to see some of you at Yarn Garden next week for the Swiss Darning class. Third time is a charm. 6:30 to 9:00. All materials are included. Call Tiffany for more info. That is August 10th.

I love the swiss darning on the hat. I'm just beginning to knit and I'm going to try the swiss darning. Thanks for sharing your work.
