Captive In the Summer Kingdom
A memory from the past, or was it a dream - how ever did it begin...?
So simply, just a little loop and a few single crochets, what could be more innocent and pure? And then the dance slowly began, round after round of pleasure and joyous abandon; before I knew it I was in over my head and deeply in love. Yet I could not stop, even as I fell into a spiraling web beyond my control! I had never intended it to go this far, I swear by the old gods and the new, but I was possessed and held captive by my own desires.
And then it happened! A bold maneuver, designed to rescue me from the eternal chains - they stormed the citadel, riding 3 abreast, the double crochets standing tall and brave! Onward came the Queen's Guard of doubles, and then my loyal single crochets took to the field, round after round! And finally, a flanking maneuver by a round of Reverse Single Crochets to release their Queen from the spell!
Free again, I threaded a ribbon through the Queen's Guard round, and bestowed my loyal knights with a button of honor. Yes, I am free once more, but wasn't it fun? On to the next project!

Knitting constantly, Unless I'm crocheting...
I started at my grandmother's knee. It was said that as a child back in the "old country" she was exempted from farm labor because she could knit an entire thigh-length stocking in an afternoon. Now THERE'S incentive to work on your knitting speed!
