More Piano!

After finishing the first piano scarf I was worried that nobody would buy the pattern or queue it up in Ravelry. Boy was I wrong! It’s been a thrill to watch it pop up in queues or to get notification of sales. Each time is like a secret gift that randomly appears in my inbox. It’s awesome!

So when Amy asked me to make her a piano scarf I was glad to do so. This time around I popped it into my bag and carried it with me if I knew I was going to be sitting somewhere for several hours.

Apparently, seeing somebody knitting in public down here isn’t that common and pair that with something as large and striking as a giant black and white piano scarf and you get lots of questions. I love questions though since it gives me a chance to share a little of my passion.

Sometimes sharing a passion that’s not the normal is seen as silly. But that’s okay, because the people I knit for come to me to have help in sharing their passion. And in this case I’m glad to take cues from my husband, who doesn’t mind being a little silly at times if it means helping somebody with what they need.

I mean, how can you not laugh at somebody doing this? And he’s such a good sport, allowing me to drag him out into the sun after a long day of work and an hour drive home to drape wool around him for pictures. I’m glad he puts up with me and supports me in my passion.
