a petite tribute to petite

just a tidbit for now -- but do go on and read my older posts if you haven't yet. I'll post again either today or tomorrow (I'm stitching up a cardigan and sewing buttons on -- should have photos soon plus I have a great knitlit quotation for you from a book you should read)

for now, though, just wanted to say that it's the one-year anniversary of Petite Anglaise's firing, an event with cautionary implications for all bloggers with employers. If you don't already read her, take a minute to head over to her place (same link, I just really want to make sure you do what I tell you!) -- she's wry, perspicacious, sometimes a wee bit shocking, regularly side-splittingly funny, and always, honest beyond expectation. And, big bonus for Parisophiles like me, she lives in a great city, giving us a view of it from a non-tourist angle.

and since we're in paris, head over here. You'll laugh, oh, you'll laugh, especially if you've ever struggled with languages. Reminds me of David Sedaris' laugh-til-I-cry-funny Me Talk Pretty Some Day.


  1. wow, you knit more than i had realized... I'm impressed by your list of 2007 FOs (see, I'm getting the knitting-speak ;). It would be cool to link them to your flickr photos since they all have unique URLs...

  2. Yes, I'm really "outing" myself as a knitter here -- I'm not sure anyone who knows me has quite understood the depths of my addiction! (and she's my daughter, folks)
    And I would love to set up some links with my list of FO's but I'll have to do some fiddling with Blogger to do that -- so much easier if you'd come over for the day and help me out ;-)
    And yes, not surprisingly, you're a quick study on the knit-speak. Next we should get you to finish that sweater you were making for Zach, oh, about 15 years ago!


I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
