Sixth Sunday

I cannot believe I am going to show you this. This is my I’ll-get-around-to-this-on-the-sixth-Sunday-of-the-month pile. Also, known as the dear-knitting-gnomes-I-will-pay-anything-to-make-it-go-away pile. Somewhere in there are WIPS that whisper their sorry state of neglect to me at 2 AM.

Dear Ma’am

Dear Jade, Strutting ceased about 6 days ago.  My feet began to hurt and strutting isn’t the same with a limp.  The preening stopped around 2 days ago.  If I had continued, I would soon be bald. Thank you for the gentle reminder that someone somewhere might worry if I don’t make the occasional noise to […]
