Day Two: Dating Profile.
Write a dating profile for one of your past finished projects.
This topic is designed to get bloggers exploring different ways in which they can write descriptive posts of finished knitted and crocheted projects. Many bloggers will be used to writing adjective-rich accounts of finished items along with an account of how the item was made, but it can be fun to play with this format. Usually a dating profile would be written in the first person, so you should imagine that you are the cardigan/socks/hat writing the piece. You might think of including some or all of these elements in your dating profile:
An introduction: where you were knitted/crocheted, how old you are.
A physical description – keep it fun and intriguing but honest.
Your interests: Are you a crocheted sun-hat that enjoys long walks on the beach, a paper cup cosy that loves meeting friends in the local coffee shop or a thermal pair of socks that loves going on skiing holidays?
Things that you do not like: Do you avoid moments of friction because it brings you out in pills? How do you feel about moths? Are you a little orange cardigan that just simply cannot get on with a fuchsia blouse?
Your thoughts for the future – do you have any ambitions – where do you think you will be in 1, 5, 10 years time?
Hey there. They say cleanliness is next to godliness… so what does that make me?
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. Obviously, I’m a washcloth. But really, I’m so much more than that. (Okay, not really. I’m a washcloth. But hey – I’m focused!)
I’m passionate about cleanliness; it’s my raison d’être. I’d like to show you what I mean. If we should get up to that point in our relationship where we can take our time enjoying a shower, I will lovingly lave every bit of your–
What’s that? Safe for work? Okay. Well, you can just let your imagination run with that one… ;)
I like long luxurious bubble baths, hanging out and showing off my colours, and snuggling with cats. Admittedly, the cat likes to snuggle with me more than I like to snuggle with him, but isn’t that often the case with cats?
Of course, there are some things I don’t like as much. I’m all cotton, soft and sweet, so the thought of bleach gives me the shivers! And, not to get too TMI from the outset, but I’d like a nice airy place to spend some time drying off by myself after our interludes, if you wouldn’t mind too much.
Hopefully you and I will have many long years of keeping clean together. Won’t you join me for a slow, relaxing bath one of these evenings? You bring the wine and candles, I’ll bring the soap…
