While we were sleeping, our American friends had a golden day. If I didn't have to work today, I would have sat up to watch the inauguration live (I don't know for sure, but I'd bet that this US Presidential inauguration was the first ever shown live on each of our free to air television networks). So I recorded it to watch tonight.
Reading GidgetKnits today, I had to copy her inspired idea to "knit the moment into something". She chose something golden and I had to copy that too - I started the second of my Tantalising Socks - which is the first brown bag from my Personal Sock Club 2009 - sort of cheating, I know, to include something which is half knit, but they are such special socks, I figured they could part of the club.
I thought this project was the right one - socks are humble and practical, they are worn by all no matter what their background, and in the case of this particular pair of socks (due to the great yarn and fabulous pattern), beautiful and clever.
All qualities which I think are appropriate to the new President of the United States. A golden day.
