What Were You Knitting on Feb 4, 1983?
I was knitting a brown, brown, brown sweater for an undeserving boyfriend and was marooned on Sleeve Island. Times were hard for knitters, then; acrylic ruled the earth and Woolworth's was your yarn destination.
I was finishing up this brown, brown, brown sweater for a Valentine's Day present that evening and watching the news when I saw that Karen Carpenter had died a bad death.
Here is a link to that Todd Haynes movie, The Karen Carpenter Story I think in it's entirety, which you can watch at work if nobody's watching you because it's almost an hour long.
