I’ve spent much time (MUCH time) working on this sweater during the past several days. I finished the second sleeve this afternoon. The button bands and shawl collar are left, as well as the elbow patches and pockets. It’s very handy to have a right-sized boy here to try it on. 🙂
I picked up Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11 at the library several days ago. Appropriate reading for this week. It’s good. I mean, it’s describing a tragedy, but the format of transcribed oral interviews arranged by “in the towers”, “outside the towers”, “ground zero”, “aftermath”, etc., is very effective. It makes fascinating reading, and offers a lot of perspectives that one simply misses in the shock of the overall day and days following the attacks. I saved all the newspapers for the first two weeks after 9/11 (we were living in northeastern PA at the time) and one day I’ll get them back out. Those too had many individual stories.
