Today was a good first day. I talked with many people about the project, added the first roots and sat and crocheted with a few visitors. Some of the comments were amusing.

Peter, a traffic engineer who works in the building, came by a few times and finally sat down and let me teach him how to crochet. We talked about boat knots and he's going to show me how to tie some one day soon. I've been wanting to connect with people who use occupational knots for a long time, so here's the first one!
