Unexpected advantage

Just as our play is making progress, so is my lace knitting. We’re so close to opening night now that it’s dark in the auditorium when we rehearse. Usually that’s very bad circumstances to knit lace. Usually a plain vanilla sock that has either not yet come to or gone past the heel is the best knitting for dark places. It turned out though that lace has the unexpected advantage of being see-thorugh. Instead of seeing the actual yarn you see the light behind it and thus make out the stitches from the black web that is the knitting. You learn something new every day. Also, knowing the sound-and-light-guy is rarely a bad thing but especially not when it comes to knitting adpated light, a small spot light just for me and I was happily knitting away between scenes.
