A Knitting Giant
Witt Pratt, a local textile artist who died May 20 at age 48, was by all accounts a gentle and life-loving soul. He started playing around with knitting as a youngster growing up in McLean, even though everybody knew that knitting was for girls, and if he liked to knit then surely he was "a sissy." As he grew up -- and up -- he became, in his own words, "a 6-foot-8-inch sissy," a big man deftly wielding sharp objects. In public. For the whole world to see.
Ya gotta problem with that?
