Letters from the Iditor
|Welcome to a new feature on my blog - directly inspired by this hilarious post.|
Dear neighborhood yoga studio:
It is super convenient that you are a mere 3 blocks away from my house, and it's very convenient to register for your classes on line. It might seem very New Age and non-hierarchical to label your classes with titles like "Activating" and "Awakening" rather than Level 1 and Level 2, but these vague titles might lead to people accidentally signing up for fairly advanced classes, and spending the better part of 90 minutes breathing through the pain.
Dear City of Toronto Department of Solid Waste Management:
Thank you for making it very easy for me to figure out the collection zone our house belongs to. That was a good joke on your part inserting a graphic of an out of focus calendar under the heading "Residential single family dwellings collection calendars". Would you consider getting a 10 year old to design a web page which includes a downloadable calendar so that I know if it is Thursday 1 or Thursday 2? Perhaps you could pay her with parking ticket revenues. It might also be a bit more efficient than having a dedicated automated phone line specifically for the purpose of leaving requests to have calendars mailed out to one's residence.
Back to the knitting:
I have finished knitting the Plain Vanilla Stockinette Socks, but they aren't off the needles yet:
They tried to use their protective colouring to blend into their surroundings, But the Intrepid Knitting Hunter Somerset is not easily foiled.
Saartje Bootie #1 is off the needles:
I hope to get the second one done this weekend.
Dear Kaleidoscope Designer:
Thank you for designing this beautiful sweater. However, I'm kind of funny in that I tend to buy enough of a single sock yarn for one pair of socks, rather than enough to knit 3 pairs from the same colourway. Do you realize that this means I now have to go out and buy extra sock yarn just to use up what I already have? Did the yarn store owners put you up to this?
