5KCBWDAY2: Dating Profile

Day Two (Tuesday 13th May): Dating Profile.
Write a dating profile for one of your past finished projects.

This topic is designed to get bloggers exploring different ways in which they can write descriptive posts of finished knitted and crocheted projects. Many bloggers will be used to writing adjective-rich accounts of finished items along with an account of how the item was made, but it can be fun to play with this format. Usually a dating profile would be written in the first person, so you should imagine that you are the cardigan/socks/hat writing the piece. You might think of including some or all of these elements in your dating profile:

An introduction: where you were knitted/crocheted, how old you are.
A physical description – keep it fun and intriguing but honest.
A photograph.
Your interests: Are you a crocheted sun-hat that enjoys long walks on the beach, a paper cup cosy that loves meeting friends in the local coffee shop or a thermal pair of socks that loves going on skiing holidays?
Things that you do not like: Do you avoid moments of friction because it brings you out in pills? How do you feel about moths? Are you a little orange cardigan that just simply cannot get on with a fuchsia blouse?
Your thoughts for the future – do you have any ambitions – where do you think you will be in 1, 5, 10 years time?

I have something to say to you – Knitter4UFO

I’ve been working my nerve up for ages. I fully intended to have this conversation some months back, but the unexpected changes that affected all of us threw me.
I tend to take things as signs, regardless of the (lack of) logic or self-defeatism that may entail.
Unmistakably, most glaring, though, so many signs direct me to you. I need to talk to you and tell you everything I’ve been holding in.
I’m planning on doing it soon. Here’s hoping you actually talk to me this time.


If all I am doing doesn’t tell you how much I love you than – UFO4Knitter

open your eyes. We belong together. No questions… you and me as crazy as it was belong together. I will never stop loving you. Put the past where it belongs. You obviously have been enjoying yourself since you left. I’m sure you got your fill. I don’t care… let’s move on together and be what we are supposed to be. I Love You. You can do whatever you need to achieve all of your aspirations and I will help you. We have to both get on with our lives and we need each other to do so.
