(Don't) Talk to a Lawyer Day

In the spirit of MLK day, yesterday I volunteered for a 2 hour shift at Talk to a Lawyer Day, being sponsored by the local Legal Aid Office.  A chance for someone to talk to a lawyer, free of charge.  We are not going to solve all their problems in 15 minutes, but we may be able to point someone in the right direction, or determine whether or not they should hire a lawyer. 

Except that no one came, at least not while I was there.  Three lawyers standing by to dispense free legal thoughts, but no one listening.  The single digit temperature probably had something to do with it. 

So I spent those two hours knitting quietly. Two long hours in the middle of the day, with nothing to do but knit.  (Insert sigh of contentment.)

Last night was also Knitter-vention.  SO I braved the frigid temps, and trekked on out to 9 Irish Brothers.  Except that no one came.  It didn't occur to me until later to check Facebook.  Sure enough, child illnesses and the aforementioned cold had kept everyone else in.  (One lonely brave soul did pop in for the last 40 minutes or so, so I wasn't alone the whole time.)

So I spent those two hours knitting quietly.  This time I had a pint of cider as well.  Are we noticing a pattern?

The four hours of solitary knitting meant that I finished the first panel of Fuchsia Wave.  30 inches, 17 repeats.  And time to cast on the second "wave", so to speak.  After I look up how to do a provisional cast on again. 

Today, it is all about the waves.
