it is 7pm on a sunday night.
i am fumbling w/my first ever pattern proposal.
i have knit and blocked the swatch, written a description,
and laid these out neatly in a word document.
to sketch my idea for ‘vashti’ out clearly.
and i call my dad (next door),
say something convincing,
and then hover over
his shoulder as he
draws each line
i balk at).
‘vashti’ is now part of
only because dad bailed me out in the last hours
before the sand, in the hourglass
holding the minutes
until the submissions deadline, ran out.
be sure to visit laura’s blog thursday,
it’s the next stop on the blog tour.
and thanks for stopping by.
