A fine match

Way back in 2005, OCLC*  celebrated the cataloging of its one billionth record by sending out pins with their WorldCat logo on it. Mine has sat pristinely in its little plastic bag from that day until now, since I’m not much of a pin-wearer. But I have finally found the perfect item to wear it with.

(Hint: compare the structure of the shawlette with the structure of the WorldCat logo.)

I talk about knitting the shawlette itself on Silver Threads.

*OCLC (Online Computer Library Center, Inc.) is a library organization that, among other things, runs WorldCat, an online public access catalog (it’s a single catalog of what lots of libraries have in their collections).
