It’s Getting Hot in Here, So Sew Up All Your Squares
December 6, 2007
First, very important: THE SEW-UP DATE HAS CHANGED. (The yarn shop had a conflict.) The new details are:
TIME: 4-8 p.m.
PLACE: Knitty City, 208 West 79th Street (between Amsterdam and Broadway)
Note: Nobody has to come for the whole 4 hours! Come when you can, leave when you must. I know everyone is busy this time of year, and then there’s those pesky day jobs, too.
Please send me an email (bigbonegalAThotmailDOTcom) if you’re planning to come, so that we have some idea of what the demand will be for tapestry needles, munchables and potables.
Roll On, Squares!
As scientists map the human genome, I hope they are looking for the gene labeled “deadline-oriented”. This is a very real thing in human behavior: gittin’ ‘r done in the face of a deadline. Surely this must have been a survival-enhancing trait for early man, which is kind of amazing when you consider that they didn’t even have a calendar back then. They must have had to have their squares knitted by the next full moon or something.
The deadline brought a ree-diculous quantity of squareliness to my doorstep.
This load of love was brought to you by: Seanna Lea, Rev. Linda, Sally D, Kate R, Eve B, Margo Lynn, Sara L, Laura L, Celia, Tish, No Name from Tennessee, Gwen M (again!), Jorun, Sally, Betsy T from Classic E, Anne R, Stacey P, Marlena C, Barb C (and daughter Stella!), Kathy D, Ren W, Joyce T, Jan, Kathryn K, Angie N, Mary Lou E, Adrienne, Danielle (fun fact: Danielle used yarn she received in her Hefty Bag Contest prize from you, Ann), Cynthia N, Sandy R, Gusty, Marie P, Birdsong S, Joanne E, Lisa, Elizabeth D, Leslie B, Colleen, Annell, Julie McC, Laura K, Stephanie, Vicki, Marina M, Kate R, E.H., Laura T, Al, Morna C, Mary Lynn, K.D., L Moon, Kathryn R, Theresa H, Jennifer M, Melissa, Becca, Robin S aka Clif’s Teacher, Mary B, Mary Sue T, Francie O, Kelly S (again!), Susan, Patty M, Helen C, Sheryl, Emily, Felicia R, Kathleen N, Julie B, The Rubins, Alexis J, Jennifer, Libby B, Barbara C, Dale-Harriet, Pink Sky, Mary B, Kathy K, Wendy S, and Lacee.
PHEW! My linkerator is hurting!
In the crowd, I came across this square.
You think I’m lying, but I swear I could see this square, anywhere, and say, “That one is Ann’s.” It’s so you! So mostly-not-an-actual-color, so drabby-graybrown, and then that wedge of jazzy citron (is it yellow? is it green? YES!). Your squares–this one and its many handsome siblings–betray you.
Have I re-counted them yet? No. Are there more? Yes. There are quite a few straggler envelopes that I’ve yet to open and inventory. Thank you, everyone. I’m so glad people “didn’t have time to knit many” squares this time of year; if you had had any more focus, my linkerator would be busted, and I’d be sewing until the end of time.
