Thrift shop sweater reclamation: I'm listening to Rip Torn read Kurt Vonnegut while pulling apart a pink sweater Dragonstar found at the thrift store, hoping to turn at least some of the yarn into a bad-hair-day beanie once I've learned to crochet.
My friend Shawn has been coming over for guitar lessons. "We need to keep learning new things," she told me. She is learning A, D and E chords. I am learning single and double crochet, chain stitches and slip stitches, while getting a refresher course (via Vonnegut) in the bombing of Dresden during WWII.
