UFO Day: 17 March, 10am to 4pm
Have you considered how that sock feels about being stuck at the bottom of your project bag? It’s been there for months, wretched with loneliness. That’s bad enough, but having to sit there with the ingredients for happiness balled up by its heel gusset just makes things worse. Not good. And there’s no hope for the poor wee thing. It cannot do much about it, like knitting a match, playing I-Spy in the dark, or hanging itself. No. Doesn’t quite work, if you’re a sock.
So, bring it along to the next UFO Day and reap the benefits. Not only will sockie once again feel the sun on his face, it will stir you out of Second Sock Syndrome.
The same can be said for that cardigan, where just one tiny little detail is preventing it from being the star of sartorial statements: it only has one sleeve. It’s probably sobbing into its ribbing right this minute, with visions of being on the catwalk slowly being replaced by ones of being in the cat’s bed.
Do it a favour and parade it for some ‘ooh!’s and ‘ah!’s on 17 March.
And what about that lace shawl? I shudder to think how that one must feel, scrunched up in a ball and shoved behind the sofa for nigh-on a year. In fact, I cannot even bring myself to consider its plight. Let’s just settle on it being here next week.
Now, let the shop know you will be attending, think of a little contribution to the picnic lunch, and look forward to a full day of guilt-free knitting.
