* Be Our Guest! Gabriela, ( also known on social media as Gabyknits or simplygabriela), was so kind as to record a video talking to us about herself and what she loves about the social media app Periscope. Thanks, Gaby! You can find us on Periscope (and Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook) as knitworthygirls. 


Bless your Heart:

(Or the lack thereof)

You flirted with me all night long,
You cheeky little thing.

Your sweet little whispers were so faint
I could scarcely make them out 

Tossing and turning I searched for you, 
First on one side and then another.  

I searched the refrigerator for you,
And even searched my phone. 
You were not there.  

I knitted my love for you in garter stitch 
and in mitered square 
Still, you refused to meet me.   

I had such high hopes for you.  

We've had a lifetime together. 
Our history, our bond, our relationship
I thought it was enough for you. 

But it wasn't.   

I once called you my beloved
But now I know you are just a "Floosie"

Linda Lee, Stoneybrooke
