Perils of Margene (Part l)
April 19, 2010
The intrepid knitter blithely creates her stitches one by one, taking no heed of the pitfalls and perils ahead (even though she knows this road can be bumpy). Margene sits smiling (it's actually a silly grin) and enjoys the process of her project. She dreams of the day this lovely sweater will be finished and she can wear it with pride.
The back has been finished for some time and the front (right front) is now off the needles. This happy knitter lays out her work for a triumphant picture. How happy the day! Both pieces look great, Margene is satisfied, and pleased, as the going has not been easy. A new feeling of dread comes over her. Has this knitter taken care to follow through with due diligence?
De Nile is a huge and dangerous river for the knitter who does not take care, who simple cannot imagine something ELSE could go wrong. The sweater looks good, but is it? Is there (more) trouble ahead? Is she doomed?
Your Sprössling grows and grows. The colour looks great. Can not wait to see the work ready.
But tell me, what means DENILE?
Have a nice Monday.

I'm not sure I like where this seems to be going. The frogpond is COLD this time of year.

Uh-oh. I'm sort of hearing the Snidely Whiplash music. . . Hoping for the best, but biting my nails!

Will our heroine remain tied to the railroad tracks?

Oh no! I hope our lovely knitter does not wake up in her boat at Victoria Falls. That could be disastrous! Keeping my fingers crossed for the best.

lions and tigers and bears - oh my - what will be the outcome of this mystery

Alas! Will our intrepid knitter fall victim to her own folly by believing the Fates have ill will? No! She has forethought and insight and will quietly sit and review her map before proceeding.

I sure hope it is only ay ay ay and not a complete oy oy oy!
Will cross fingers for our knitter :)

No No No. Even De Nile can be crossed one stitch at a time by this knitter.
