The Opposite of Lazy (on most days)

Posted on May 10, 2009. 7 comments

Laziness. A short photo essay (too lazy to read a long essay? Now with LESS words!) on why you should thank me for being a lazy knitter but not a lazy designer.
Exhibit One, not lazy:

One seamless sweater, knit from the bottom up with a lovely cable to keep you from death via boogabooga while knitting all that stockinette.

TWO pictures of Goody Sweater. Decidedly NOT lazy.
Exhibit Two, lazy:

Stale 3 day old goldfish. The first law of laziness "Goldfish beget more goldfish." (Wait...is that cheerio dust marring the luster of my beautiful laminate almost wood floor?)
Exhibit Three, not lazy:
Cleverly written pattern with drawings, charts and clear instructions on how to make your own Goody sweater. Six sizes available in chest measurements as follows 32(36, 38, 40, 42, 44) inches

Exhibit Four, lazy:

Post partum abdominal region cleverly hidden by hand knit sweater and elasticized waist band. (Unwashed hair hidden via distance shot and mood lighting.)
Exhibit Five, not lazy:
* The sweater won't pick up the cheerios your little toddler unceremoniously stomped into the grain of the wood of your floor.
* The sweater won't melt away those post baby pounds.
* The simple shaping and stockinette will allow you to quickly toss it aside when little Johnny climbs on top of the fridge to play with matches for the 7th time today. You can easily find your previous place in the knitting after the fire department leaves and the memory of firemen quitclaims your subsconsious.
* The neck and waist shaping will give a flattering shape even if you feel like an oompa loompa.

    Happy Mother’s Day! Will most definitely be buying that sweater pattern as soon as I finish organizing my office/couch (otherwise, it’ll get lost in the shuffle). Goldfish and cheerio dust is requisite for a house with little people- you need house bunnies to take care of that cheerio problem…

    Lazy hoar. Cute sweater! Cheerio dust? The bane of mothers everywhere.
