"long viewed as the domain of grandmothers..."
why must every piece of mainstream press on knitting begin with these words? hasn't knitting been "cool" since, like, the last millennium? and furthermore, when was the last time these people took a look at today's grandmothers? we should all be so hip.
but i digress. the point of my rant isn't really a rant at all. it's mostly a rave. about this: the radical lace and subversive knitting exhibit at the museum of arts and design in nyc.
the owner of my fave LYS is planning an overnight road trip to see it in march. we'll board amtrak in rochester and knit all the way down. we're planning to hit up some yarn shops, take in the exhibit, and then return home the next day.
on another note, it's a good thing we're not flying. is it just me or have you noticed a teensy bit of a backlash against knitting on planes? my knit-challenged friends were ribbing me about my pointy sticks last week as we got ready to go through security on the flight home from aspen. i tossed it off as jealousy until i came across this tidbit. and it's not just the frequent fliers that are hassling us. check out this bit from click and clack.
maybe knitting at home isn't such a bad idea after all. just don't make me sit in a rocking chair.
