Inauguration Day 2009: Aerial view of the National Mall
Originally uploaded by USA TODAY
Yes, I know you know it's inauguration day here in the USA. We have a new president, and I am certainly not the first to post our collective sigh of relief (no matter who you voted for, we can all agree a change of scenery may be a good thing), but we also post our collective crocheted sightings.
In that crowd of thousands are crocheted hats and sweaters, there were plenty of pointy stick offerings too, but really I'm hear to write about crochet, I'm sure the pointy stickers are well covered in their blogospheres!
For a fun and insightful account check out CLF Member Vashti Braha's (Vashtirama) blog, http://www.designingvashti.blogspot.com.
I know I spotted some crochet up in the honored seating area, as well as some fabulously significant hats and scarves in the crowd.
Yay for crochet. It looked really good today. And here is for a peaceful transition of power. May we move forward in peace.
