My random python script has spoken. The budding lawyer wins the Civic Duty Scarf, which seems appropriate enough.  Congrats, Chezza, and thank you everybody for playing. I'll keep the rest of you on the list for my next jury duty service call...

Scarf for Grabs

So I did my civic duty and got through jury duty. Apparently what my country required of me was not my inestimable talents of discernment, but rather for me to sit in a reasonably comfortable waiting room chair for the better part of two hours, very patriotically not knitting. 

I could have taken a stand on my second amendment right to bear knitting needles, but there is a time and a place, so I went with armed with a plastic crochet hook instead.

I'm about to begin a cape knit-along. This is not to be confused with a caped knit-along, where one knits incognito. Or a crepe knit-along, which would involve breakfast, though that's not a bad notion either.

If you love to craft, and you Lovecraft, or you've always meant to try, grab your yarn and head over to the Frankensocks board on Ravelry, where we'll spend a month reading the best of H.P.'s weird tales that the public domain has to offer and knit or hook something appropriate to match. An insanely good time is assured.

The US Olympic committee has now issued two formal apologies to the Ravelry community. One for their original inflammatory accusations and a second to apologize for their apology in which they invited knitters to make them free stuff. This, I think, proves that it is unwise to piss off two million people holding sharp sticks.
