Challenge #2

It is time once again to post about about one of the Amazing Lace's challenges.

It appears that Twizzler (aka the Sampler Shawl) has taken matters into his own hands. Over the past week or so, I have been drawn to Branching Out and to Rose-of-Sharon, because knitting a wool shawl in hot weather just wasn't doing it for me. I didn't realize that ignoring Twizzler would cause him to take eXtreme measures.

Don't believe me? Well, today I decided to rest in the wonderful air-conditioned library about a mile from my house. I thought since it was a nice day, I would walk. While I was walking to the library, I noticed that my backpack was really heavy. Why would it be heavy? I knew I had my laptop, but I just brought Branching Out and Rose-of-Sharon with me. I decided that I must have forgotten to check the front pockets and there was probably a paperback or something in there.

When I got to the library, I set up my laptop and direct my browser to bloglines. While everything was loading, I went to take a peek at the knitting books. When I left my laptop, my campout looked like the following. Everything looks fine right? Just my laptop and knitting blogs waiting for me to return.

When I returned to my seat, things had changed dramatically. Take a look for yourself. Twizzler had snuck into my backpack and brough Folk Shawls with him. As you can see from the photo, he tied up Branching Out and Rose-of-Sharon just to show me he meant business. I guess I know who is in charge now.

"Yes Twizzler, I'm coming! I am going to stop reading knitting blogs and work on you right now! Please stop teasing Branching Out and Rose-of-Sharon! They are smaller than you!"



  1. It's like those SciFi movies when robots get brains - Twizzle now has a life of his own - and he's ready to prove it!

  2. Dude, that shawl is starting to frighten me. You may want to make sure he doesn't have access to any credit cards, or who knows what trouble he'll cause.

    Heh heh -- sort of sounds as though your lace projects have become your children. They sure are acting that way!
