I ran into a friend from art school yesterday... this makes the third ex-CCACer I've run into this week. I went to the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, CA from 1990 to 1994.
Sandy, who I ran into, turns out to also knit... in fact, his sister, Christina owns Article Pract the yarn store near my house!
I also received an envelope from Article Pract the other day when I got home from work. I was puzzled as I hadn't signed up for any mailing list there. Turns out, my friend Karul in NY had gotten me a gift certificate for my birthday (turned 37 on the 10th, very binary). This might provide the impetus to try knitting with cashmere... I love my enablers.
The first ex-CCACer I ran into earlier this week was my RA when I was in the dorms briefly. She told me a mutual friend and fellow ex-CCACer is a new mother now... perhaps this is my opportunity to learn to knit a pair of baby booties.
