Knitting Club

I just love how knitting club was started by two students who are also EphBlog authors. As I always say, most students don’t read EphBlog, but most student leaders do! If you go to knitting club today, say Hi from EphBlog.

And, yes, it would be fun to connect Eph alumni knitters like Laura Lim Prescott ‘92 with student knitters. Let us start an Eph Knitting Mafia!

Perhaps the student knitters could post some pictures of what they worked on today . . .

Also, I still wonder what happened to the Ur-Eph Blogger, class of ’91.

Hey Dave Since we are getting somewhat historical…

When was the first post on Ephblog? It would have been cool if you captured a screen shot of that for the record, and then recorded significant layout changes over the years- you know- Ephblog 2000, Ephblog 2005, Ephblog 2010…

I don’t remember when I first posted…

Another cool thing would be if you had a date next to the bios that stated when a person started blogging here. When the site crashed, the author posting data was lost… so a lot of Ephbloggers have older posts out there that are not recorded as theirs, and the reference of the first authored post has been lost.

Is Knitting Club a vehicle for engaging in a bull session?

The first post was January 5, 2003. The original site is largely left the way it was. Alas, we have lost various authoring details over the last two moves but we did (?) save the raw data. At some point, we will try to credit the old posts (now authored by “eph”) to the correct author.

Since we moved to http://www.ephblog.com in March 2004, you can use the Internet Wayback machine to get a sense of how we looked in the past. Prior to October 2007, it is quite comprehensive. Check out April 2004. We have been providing high quality commentary from a diverse set of authors for many, many years.

I don’t knit myself, too busy reading form 990s, I suppose. But to get some sense of the potential contribution of knitting to “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” keep that Frank Loesser show in mind and see it when you can. Goes back to the Robert Morse (playing the ambitious Finch) production of the early 1960s, in other words about my vintage at Williams, but still a good show, and instructive for unscupulous getting ahead at Worldwide Widgets, even now. Is it Williams that shows up as “Old Ivy” in this show? For those potentially interested and for whom the DVD is not enough, Carnegie Mellon, over in Pittsburgh, has a production on stage right now. Everyone on in the show is an undergraduate (with my niece working on the lights)!

Ah, well, back to the 990 grind. The latest Carnegie Mellon is interesting, and similar to Williams, but the University of Pittsburgh (with their towering Cathedral of Learning, one consecration short of a Gothic cathedral!) makes a fascinating read…for those whose taste runs to these things.

I haven’t been going to the meetings because it conflicts with my a cappella group’s rehearsals… But I heard from the other girls that it’s going great! Being a freshman seems to be a more of a full time job than I thought and I haven’t been working on my stuff since September. We have great knitters here, though, one girl I know started and finished two gorgeous pairs of socks this month.
