The Festivus post started a couple of years ago when I had a few grievances and thought maybe some of you could use a place to air yours without hurting anyone's feelings. Continuing in this tradition, leave your grievance comment here on my blog by midnight on Festivus (December 21) for a chance to win a three skeins of Berroco Linus with a pattern booklet from Berroco (both are from my stash), and as second prize a choice of one of my patterns. If you are lucky enough not to have a grievance you can post your Feat of Strength, or Festivus Miracle. Did you knit twelve pairs of socks over the last few weeks? Well, we want to hear about it! I'll be drawing the name by random number generator. Please reply within 48 hours or I will have to choose another winner. You can email me at my name at aol dot com if you would prefer that I post the comment for you so that you can remain anonymous.
I'll get things started with a grievance.
Dear Crazy: I've had enough of you this year to last me a freaking lifetime. You come in many forms and show up in many ways and I'm sick of your shit. Are you some sort of poltergeist that jumps from being to being showing up just when I've had enough time to relax and let my guard down? Move the hell on and don't show up in 2105. Enough is enough.
