Knot Tuned Symphony
If knitting were music, the stitches would be the keys, and the repeats would be the time signature. If knitting were music, a simple two-by-two rib could be translated into the Key of C (no sharps or flats, just natural notes), in 2/2 time, (or cut time). Changing just a few stitches (the notes) to cables or lace (sharps or flats) the entire musical world is at your knitting fingertips. Before the orchestra is ready to play, while the audience is still in their cars driving to the theater, the instruments that have been carefully packed and stored in the theater for the performance are waiting. Nestled in cases lined with felt, their strings slightly loose, their reeds in separate pouches, and mouth pieces not attached, they sit, not tuned, until the musicians arrive.
