Blackout!

Tonight at knit night, the power suddenly went out (thanks to PG&E work around the corner), but that didn’t stop the ingenious knitters of Purl Jam!  My friends came up with various solutions to keep us knitting in the dark, from aiming smart phone flashlights into or through glasses or bottles, to aiming a bike light up at the overhead light.  Carmen of the Mexican Grill even provided us with a candle in a cup, propped up with flour.

Thanks to the creativity of the knitters and Carmen tonight, we were able to knit on for over an hour of darkness until the power came back on.

Yeah, we’re fine!
