Here are her concerns:
You seem to be under the impression that, simply because you finished one pair of socks and a Chevron Stripes Towel, you are excused from discussing knitting on the blog. You think you are fooling people by rambling on about poorly dyed jeans or your insane dining-in-public fears. You are not. You have been puttering along on things, yarn-wise. Everybody knows it. The wheel has been still for weeks now. There is fiber languishing all over the house awaiting your less than skilled touch.
Sure, you can string a few words together in a pretty engaging fashion. But that will not distract them for long. The bloggy types out there will catch on eventually. You need to admit that you are stuck yet again in the land of Unfinished Objects. People will actually respect you more for your honesty than for your ongoing discussions of rashes or failure to understand sorbet.
And now you think you are going to do a post on Halloween candy? Let's face it. You made the decision to buy a large bag of the sweet stuff "just in case" a trick or treater shows his or her masked face at your door. This has not happened in years. Literally. The only person who is buying this line is you. And you sitting there noshing on a cheddar cheese flavored rice cake is also something of a pretense. You will be eating the candy. You will probably eat the whole bag. This does not for good blogging make. It is just sad. And stop dropping cheddar flavored crumbs all over me while I warm your lap. I am not the one who likes the rice cakes. That is my sister, Desdemona.
Here's my advice: bag the whole candy thing. Don't bother trying to come up with yet another witty topic to engage the readers in the hopes that they will be distracted from your lack of progress. They are smarter than that. Be it finished or not, these people deserve a sock shot. You spent almost an hour on the little bike today and knit for a good chunk of that time. You've got some progress, there!
C'mon! You can do this...
The big, fluffy kitty is right. There must be some knitting on a knitting blog. It is a rule or something. I am grateful to have such a helpful feline around to point out that which I cannot always admit to myself. Sheep are truly the masters of denial...
