A Giant Fruit Cozy!
Remember this? It's supposed to be a pullover with some shaping to it. Right now it looks like a wool pear cozy - for giant pears, the kind Alfred Hitchcock would have written about: Day of the Ginormous Fruit: Terror at the Produce Stand! Of course there would have been some bimbo who fell down and just lay there screaming while she came nearer and nearer to being smooshed by some giant fruit. If I was doing the writing, she'd be toast, but I believe I've discussed my feelings about stupid screaming women in the old horror movies before, so I won't get all worked up today.
Anyway, back to the sweater (sounds like a newscast doesn't it? "We've got rampaging produce out here on the streets. The damage is unbelievable, and yet doctors say we should eat 5-6 servings of fruits and vegetables every day - I don't know if I'll ever be able to look fruit salad in the eye again after this kind of destruction. Back to you in the newsroom Miffy, how is the sweater coming?"
OK, so anyway, I'm past the waist shaping and now working increases again for the front porch area and I've made a few decisions:
1. Assuming we aren't attacked by giant fruit and I don't need to use the sweater to subdue an enormous pear, I plan to do set in sleeves rather than raglan sleeves.
2. I don't really have a number two for this list, but do you think if fruit did try to take over the world, it would roll or just "walk" on it's little fruity bottom? Rolling would be faster and more scarey, but it might get more bruised that way.
OK, now that you all have mental images of giant fruits doing Godzilla-like damage, my work here is done.
