Trial by foyer

All those Senators risking, as is stated at the beginning of each session, imprisonment for leaving the chambers during the proceedings–it’s been reported that quite a few of the Republican ones have been wandering out to the cloakroom. They say it’s hard to sit still. They say the chairs aren’t ergonomic.

Well, okay, so the proceedings do go on and on, sure.

But didn’t you guys bring your knitting? I mean, look at this–I had all of half a diamond done on this when the trial started. My grandmother-in-law knit a wool herringbone jacket during long Congressional hearings where her husband was being grilled years ago. (He was head of a government agency, it came with the job.)

You can’t make anything with fidget spinners, guys!

Love the knitting! Maybe knitting needles and crochet hooks are considered weapons like at the county courthouse? Jury duty is the l o n g e s t day.

DebbieR might be right about knitting needles being seen as weapons, but crochet hooks should pass and then maybe they would accomplish something productive? If nothing else ‘arm’ knitting which was a thing at somepoint.
