Market-ing

For the last week and a half, Jason and I have been filling up all of our free time on our newest blog ('cause three isn't enough!): Save Eastern Market. The good news is the market will be rebuilt and we're meeting tons of neighbors and making new friends. The bad news is that the meetings, researching and blogging has cut into my knitting and knit-blogging time. (Let's just overlook the fact that I'd been posting infrequently before the Eastern Market fire, hmmm?)

Last night, however, it finally occurred to me: why am I not knitting my way through these meetings?

EMCAC meeting progress
I'd say I made 2.5" inches of progress during last night's market-related meeting.

If you're in the DC area, come suport the market merchants and vendor this weekend and in the weeks to come --you might see me working at the Capitol Hill Community Foundation table!

I've been reading the Save Eastern Market blog, and hadn't realized it was you!

I grew up in the DC area going to Eastern Market, and I was shocked and saddened to see the news. I'm so glad to see planning move forward quickly to help the merchants and reopen!

De-lurking to say hello from a fellow (but relatively new) DC-er...I live in Foggy Bottom but always take friends and visitors to Eastern Market. I'm going to check out that blog to stay updated on it's re-birth. Thanks!!

also delurking to say hello. I've been reading Save Eastern Market as well! I just spent lots of cash on Tuesday at various businesses donating to the cause and hope to see it back on its feet soon... though I do hope the restrooms will be better then they were...

Read about the fire, and I'm so glad that there's lots of grassroots support for the rebuilding!
