Blue and Bridge Day and Other Knitting Fables
Marjorie, Maureen, Marcia, and Rosemary enjoyed Mondays, which was Blue and Bridge Day, almost as much as they enjoyed Thursdays, which was Pink and Political Protest Day, or Friday, which was Green and Grooming Day. The one fly in Marjorie, Maureen, and Marcia's ointment was that Rosemary was still stubbornly refusing to drop the Rose from her name and go by Mary.
When Taylor's new boyfriend asked her to wear a cami and knickers set to bed, she designed what she was sure was a perfect compromise between his taste in lingerie and her own tendency to feel the cold.
Cara, who believed that clothing should always be an expression of who one really is, felt her new outfit spoke eloquently of how much she enjoyed her weaving class as well as of her childhood adoration of Big Bird.
Destiny only got halfway down the runway before she felt a terrible draft coming from somewhere.
Angelica's friends wondered if they should tactfully point out that she had taken the Fringe Festival's name too literally when designing her outfit for it.
Vladlena had found it difficult to choose between making a cowl, a shawl, a pullover, a cardigan, or a coat, and kept changing her mind as she worked, but in the end she decided her indecision had given her design a certain organic flow.
Summer had had a slight tape measure mishap when knitting her new tunic, but since she was also prone to having laundry mishaps, she figured the two would balance each other out.
Felicia's new sweater design had two influences: The Pillow Book of Sei Shōnagon, which Felicia had recently read, and Felicia's own propensity for needing to take naps in places without cushioned surfaces on which to rest her head.
Cassidy's design concept had something to do with her love of the little plaid school uniforms she'd worn and the sleeping bag sleepovers she'd gone to as a child.
Makenzie's new look was a tribute her to her favourite movie heroine: Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
