I was settling down to write a post about the singer Norah Jones and, while looking for YouTube clips, came across this random gem.
As you will see, it is a celebration of a woman’s devotion to knitting. Huh? You might ask. I know – you have to watch it, then you will know. If you build it they will come, to mis-quote one of my favourite films.
This lady has knitted hundreds of sweaters over the years. This film shows them all being given an outing, flash-mob style, to the tune of The Turtles’ 1967 hit So Happy Together.
This is total immersion in the joy of being human. Of being part of a community. Of letting oneself go and joining in with the fabulousness of life. I’m sure Norah would give me a high five on that one.
