If knitting were music, the stitches would be the keys, and the repeats would be the time
signature. If knitting were music, a simple two-by-two rib could be translated into the Key of C (no sharps or flats, just natural notes), in 2/2 time, (or cut time). Changing just a few stitches (the notes) to cables or lace (sharps or flats) the entire musical world is at your knitting fingertips. At the ballet, the dancers are pulling on their costumes and stretching, warming up their bodies for the dancing to come; in the orchestra pit the musicians are pulling out their instruments that have been nestled in cases lined with felt, not tuned, and begin tuning them.
