I often find myself photographing at public schools. I'm almost always there because of people and programs going on, and I love the subject of education. But there is something about the settings that get me. Maybe because they're so timeless and often (economically) classless. I mean, look at the velvet curtain, the construction paper chains and winter decoration. This could be last week in Fair Haven , a working class neighborhood of Latino new immigrants in New Haven , or it could have been my elementary school, a few hundred miles and a
couple, few decades um, lifetime, ago.
Thanks for all the blogiversary comments. This whole blogging scene, and the connections we make, and the things that happen next, are really truly amazing.
I thought I'd be showing you the finished Cobblestone sweater but you know that garter stitch yoke? A time (and yarn) gobbler. We've been on a bender of watching The Wire on DVD, this week obsessed with Season 2. So caught up in the plots and dialogue that I sometimes stop knitting to concentrate on the characters. I know ? Whats up with that? Unthinkable. But the sweater is blocking now and so is another little project. FO's next post.
Meanwhile, play fair, OK?
