"Knitting" crosses over to a commencement speech!

Fired New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson just gave the commencement address at Wake Forest University. Abramson closed by citing a commencement address given by Robert Frost in 1956, in which he described life after graduation as “pieces of knitting to go on with.”

“My mother was a great knitter, and she made some really magnificent things, but she also made a few itchy, frankly hideous sweaters for me,” Abramson said. “She left some things unfinished. So today, you gorgeous, brilliant people, get on with your knitting.”
