doesn't mean the knitting is a slouch....
That would be Le Slouch, if you please.
Ms. Wendy B. has it right: put a french article on it and there's no longer a shadow of anything pejorative about the word.
I'm getting ready to head to the airport this afternoon. I'm going to HOUSTON. Turns out it's warm down there. Delightful.
I just hate that I've had bad allergy things this week. I foresee several days of high-altitude sinus-shifting deafness. Fortunately right now that pales in the light of getting to LEAVE TOWN for a couple of days.
Guess I shouldn't take this knitting on the plane. Big metal size nines? I think I'll stick with the knitting that's on bamboo.
