How to tell if a girl likes you*
She may knit you something. Like a scarf, say. Wear it. Even if you hate scarves, or anything around your neck, and it makes you itch and claustrophobic: wear it. It took her a long, long time to make you this scarf, and with every stitch, she thought of you and the wonderful future you’d share together. You’ll need a scarf in this future perfect. It will get cold. Some days, she will wonder if she still loves you. You will need this scarf then, to remind you that she did, and will, and does. If you are lucky, she may offer to knit you a pair of socks, or a sweater. Do not recoil in horror. This is her telling you how much she likes you.
*From my referrer log. I love seeing the search terms that lead readers to this blog, though I often regret that there’s almost nothing here of any practical value to the random visitor. I imagine cursing out there whenever someone googles float+to+walls+containing+piers and finds no practical plastering advice whatsoever. The above is a small rectification, from a knitter’s point of view, just in case anyone comes looking for advice on this matter in the future.
