Yesterday was so beautiful, we took the afternoon off and took a hike. Well us and our closest 10,000 friends that is; and headed over to hear Barack Obama speak in our local park. And by local, I mean it is 2 miles from our house.
Now I am not sure if it was my parents teachings, or how we used to live in DC; but I am a firm believer in, if you are close enough to hear a candidate speak, then go hear them speak. Whether you like them or not; how are you really going to know what they believe in if you don't listen to them speak? Granted, I am a huge Obama fan; but if McCain was only 2 miles from my house I would sure try to go see him too. Plus, how cool is it to literally be a part of history. Pretty cool indeed.
So how is this related to crochet? Well, you know me. I don't wait in grocery lines without crochet; there was no way I was going to leave my crochet behind waiting for the speeches either. BUT, the rally doesn't let you bring in bags. I'll be honest, that threw me for a while. I love Barack, but how could I not bring my crochet?
Clothing to the rescue. I loaded up some cargo capris with a hook, my cell phone, and extra yarn. Then I literally wore the sweater on the hike and into the rally. Ok, so it got a bit hot; and it sort of freaked out a few of my fellow crowd people. But it was so worth it.
Obama's speech was delayed, so I got tons of good crochet time. And best part, I got my friend, Chris, to try it on for me so I could check the length. A live model! How awesome is that?
All in all, it was a great day. Beautiful sunshine. Fun crowd. History in front of my eyes. Great crocheting, and a live model. What more could I ask for?
Thank you Qiana for coming to our rescue with taking pics!
