Extreme Knitting!

Last night I attended a wrestling show. David, friend and former roommate, has recently been attending wrestling school. As it would so happen, his teacher was going to be wrestling at a 'pro' wrestling show that would be taking place at the Mullin's Center (at UMass). And additionally, as it would so happen, the Advocate, where David works, was sponsoring the show. This meant that David could get us all free tickets and we would not have to travel to get to the event.

While I was residing with David (and Seth of course) at Rolling Green, wrestling would grace our TV at least two nights a week. Sometimes I opted out of this activity, but other times, in an effort to be social, I would watch the program in question. While I watched I always knitted.

The fact that I was going to be watching wrestling live did not deter me from wanting to knit. Clearly, wrestling was a knitting related event. For me at least there was always a 1:1 correlation. The only thing I changed when knitting to live instead of televised wrestling was the project. I worked on knitting my sock instead of Greg's blanket. After all, it is easier to get a sock into your bag and thus into the Mullin's Center.

I spent the better part of last night no more than 30 feet away from men grappling violently in a wrestling ring K2P2-ing to my hearts content!
