We usually keep things pretty quiet for Valentine’s Day, trying to spread the lovethroughout the year. But this year there was knitterly inspiration.
A figleaf (thong) … (Men’s Thong-th-thong by Joan McGowan-Michael, Cascade Fixation; my own pattern for the giant fig leaf)
And a Dr. Seuss-inspired willie warmer …. Wee Willie Warmer by Victoria Bales, Plymouth Encore remnants). Still can’t figure out how it’s to be worn. But the Greeks set Priapus statues in their gardens … we’ll call it “Middle Age Mistletoe”, hang it over the bed, and hope for the best!
