Knitting failure makes other failure seem more fail-y. Because I put off things to do it. I am such a passive-aggressive knitter. I put it away in a closet and don’t speak to it. I leave it unfinished and alone. I am the bad girlfriend of knitting.
Sometimes I say things that could be taken as double entendre. I never know whether to clarify or let people think what they think. Letting the words percolate makes me giggle, so that’s usually how it goes. Most of the time, it’s my own giggle-proneness that makes these connections anyhow. At least I’m amused.

fangbanger, YOU ARE AWESOME. Nothing better than a Dashboard covered with many many images of Eric Northman/Alexander Skarsgard.
