Wed 18 May 2011
What with work, and all the hoopla of Emily’s college admissions, family stuff and last but not least, the great dishcloth binge of 2011 I totally forgot that Saturday was the Rapture! Dang!
I admit I did see it coming and ignored the signs. As you can see in the picture on the left, one of our far-flung correspondents noticed that the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse had already arrived in the Heights. Sign number one!
Then there was the crocheting: most of the winter was spent crocheting a bedspread that you could measure in acres. Two signs!
The third was the shameless purchase of all kinds of Lion Brand yarn, which I had reviled in many a former blog post. I worshiped at the Temple of Acrylic many times this year. Really.
The fourth through sixth signs were revealed in this winter’s other project and yarn choices: the Dishcloth Situation. A clapotis. Four skeins of lime green Malabrigo lace, not even on sale.
I am waiting for the seventh and final sign to be revealed, but I predict that it will be a press release announcing that the full Habu Textile line will be available at WalMart.
I am pretty sure that I am not on that list of the saved, if only because I am 51 years old and I still laugh at substituting “Lead Us Not Into Penn Station” in the Lord’s Prayer. No, my plan for Saturday is to hit Susan’s Doomsday Garage Sale in the morning, and then go out and loot the LYS.
