Post 1650 . Wednesday April 11
My Friend Rosey has regularly featured on my blog since I set it up twelve years ago. To read all about her in 200 or so words, click HERE
Rosey recently took up knitting. So far she’s made a twelve-foot scarf, a sock and a beanie hat – it was meant to be a tea cosy but she forgot to leave a hole for the spout! The other day she wandered into the pub wearing her latest creation, a woolly pink jumper.
An interesting garment; one sleeve longer than the other, and a little lopsided with bits of wool dangling from it. ‘It really suits you’ we politely said.
Later, Rosey felt the need to visit the ladies facility. Unfortunately, as she stood to leave a strand of wool became trapped in the chair. Had we noticed we’d have stopped her for as she set off, the jumper started unraveling!
The pub was packed and Rosey had to weave in and out of tables and chairs and people at the bar. After doing what ladies do, she commenced her journey back, this time weaving between different folk and different tables. And all the time the jumper was getting shorter and Rosey had absolutely no idea!
By the time she got back, there were only about six inches of the jumper left and everyone in the pub was trapped in a giant pink spider’s web! The sight of them twisting and turning to disentangle themselves is something I’ll never forget.
Fortunately, Rosey saw the funny side of it and admitted she didn’t like it anyway. She’s promised to make me a glove.
