V is for Vexillology
This is a follow-up to the M is for Maryland post, but it should be clear enough even if you don’t read that one first.
Vexillology is the study of flags. My husband is an amateur vexillologist*. He is a member of NAVA (the North American Vexillological Association) and a former list master of the FoTW (Flags of the World) mailing list. As of this writing he ranks third in the QuizUp “flag” category in Maryland.
One thing I’ve learned, living with a vexillologist, is that it’s always worth while to look up. This is not only a good habit to get into for spotting flags, it’s also a good life lesson in general.
Yes, I did start the test knit for the Maryland Flag socks. I have four wonderful knitters working on it, and now that we’re a week into it I’ve had to make two revisions. Both involving mistaken numbers. I’m glad it’s underway at last.
