Those of you who attended this year’s Berkshire Conference may have noticed a small cadre of us knitting while listening to sessions. I had intended to bring my digital camera to capture all the creativity that was going on around me, but since I’m an air-head, on Lamictal which makes me more of an air-head, I forgot to bring it with me. So, I’ve substituted the photo above from an American Experience documentary. Apparently, ER used to knit in UN meetings, not just in the privacy of the White House. So, the next time someone gives me a hard time for knitting in Senate or some other faculty meeting, I’ll dig out this key fact.
