Someone on my Ravelry friends list—who was in a knitting group with me about 6 years ago —is knitting 100 hats from her stash.
I am inspired. In my process to minimize the shit I own, I need to include yarn, but I like knitting and want to play with the yarn, and selling yarn on ebay is tedious. So… knitting a ton of little projects sounds like a plan.
Who wants a hat? I dont think I can get 100 hats out of my stash… but I’d bet at least 10. And then, less yarn sitting around! I would, one day, like to be the kind of person who just buys yarn for a project and manages to have very litte left over.
Ha. Haha. If you are a knitter/crochetter you think that is a very funny joke.

Tomorrow, Apr 15, 6-10p:
Duke Riley in China
Magnan Metz Gallery, 521 W26th St., NYC
BROADCAST BEGINS AT 8PM
Duke Riley — a Brooklyn artist known for his nautical spectacles, staging dramatic naval battles and piloting guerrilla submarines - is in China recreating a legendary mythological race between the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac working with local artists in the suburbs of Shanghai.
According to Chinese mythology, the Jade Emperor initiated the zodiac in order to organize the measurement of time. The first 12 animals to cross the mighty river in a competitive race would each receive a year of the zodiac. The rat and the cat, both poor swimmers, persuaded the gullible ox to carry them across. As the ox began to lead the pack, the rat pushed the cat overboard and jumped off the ox to win the race alone. Hence, the first year of the zodiac was bestowed upon the cheating rat.
I need to make an appointment with this dude already. Tattootime.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
