Last night I was happily sitting down to work on the skull and crossbones cushion whilst watching So You Think You Can Dance, which I was really enjoying and then the lights went out. Our whole block was without power for about 2 hours. We’re in San Francisco, so Emergency Readiness is my middle name and we soon had candles burning. But now what? I’m not going to do intarsia work in the near dark, that would be stupid. So I picked up the other custom order which is a double sized version of The Raven
I have now made 29 knit chicks and 1 raven in the ordinary size. From the photo above you can see that I can even knit a large size one in the dark.
