I was person number 251 yesterday, as the Camella City Stockin'ettes Knitting Guild hosted the venerable Franklin Habit of the blog "the panopticon" * here in Sacramento, California for a shoot of his "1000 Faces of Knitting" project. A really wonderful and well spoken, genteel sort of guy who is seems really good at his job of getting people to relax under the bright lights for their five seconds of fame.
He had mentioned that the visit to California was a trip into the unknown for him. These women from the far coast could be a far cry from the women of the mid west. Fear not, because a good majority of us are from somewhere else. Natives are hard to find and even harder to pin down.
I was able to get one of the ladies hosting the event to take my picture with Franklin, but in the joy and exuberance of the event, forgot to ask if it was OK of me to post his picture, so I won't. I will make mention that Dolores was nowhere to be seen and if the rumors from the 'green room' are to be believed, she may have made a bee-line for the Castro District in SF! Being the gentleman that he is, Franklin demurred.
