The Panopticon Comes to Common Cod

On Friday, I somewhat reluctantly left David at home and made a special trip down to Boston for the inaugural meeting of the Common Cod Fiber Guild. I didn't go to join, as my schedule makes it hard for me to get down to the city, but they had a very special guest I couldn't miss a chance to see, especially as he was so close by and I happened to have the night off.

I took very few photos of the event, but it was really wonderful - both to see so many people I know and to hear Franklin's talk, which was every bit as entertaining as one might expect. Here's the author just before he began. It's not a very good quality photo, but I like the graphic aspects of it.

And this one is for Rabbitch, as requested:

Aside from enjoying the company of some wonderful people, the highlight of the evening for me was getting to hold the christening shawl. It's every bit as exquisite as it looks.

You do wicked cool stuff! I never go to Boston to kiss famous knitter/author/photographers on the head.

I really should get out more...

Awwww, man! How did I miss this? You were here in town, too???? What mailing list did I miss was this on? All this fun only a couple of miles from my home. Damn! Looks like so much fun.

Glad you had fun & was restraint in not stealing the shawl
