Here's what you need(le):
- A ski season with no snow
- Ensuing boredom so intense you take up knitting
- A mostly almost all the way but not quite finished knitted hat
- A desire to finish the aforementioned knitted hat
- An afternoon completely free (see point #1)
- A good pair of approach shoes
- Five dollars and twenty nine cents
Put on your good pair of approach shoes and head down to the market. You'll go through some heavily wooded areas....
|Wow. That's a lot of wood.|
And you may pass some big mountains on the way....
DO NOT LET THIS SCENERY DISTRACT YOU! You are seeking a place - a magical place - and you'll need to be on point to find it. This place? It's called "So Much Yarn". It can be elusive. Keep your eyes open and look for a small notch in the street on the west side as you approach the approach - it will be on your right hand side as you descend the slope with the market on your right.
Once you get there be prepared to be amazed. I mean, seriously, you would not BELIEVE how much yarn this place has! It is - yarnTASTIC!
|Yarn it has. So much it does.|
|Mmmm...yarn....DAMMIT I SAID DON'T GET DISTRACTED!|
|Who knew? You can even knit your own dog!|
Once you located the hidden gem, wander said yarn store looking for one tiny needle. You won't find it, but it's worth a look around. Then, ask the helpful Yarn Guide for her recommendation and she will point you in the direction of the Magical Needle of Completion. Use the five dollars and twenty nine cents (plus tax, sorry Washington State residents) to purchase the Magical Needle of Completion.
Walk directly out of the door. Proceed immediately to your home. Do not pass go. Do not give $100 dollars to the homeless. You have a mostly almost all the way but not quite finished knitted hat to finish and goddammit if you won't complete it today because maybe just maybe it will snow someday. Maybe.
|Finally all the way and quite finished knitted hat|
Use that needle to complete the hat by tying off and tucking in your loose ends. It will take five minutes to complete. But Needling isn't about the destination. It's about the journey.
