Liz in Knitgifts
My sister and mother both had some sort of stomach bug today, especially unfortunate since Gary and I were visiting. But we had a pleasant time anyway. Here's Liz, wearing both the shawl I made her last year -- which she likes to curl up in when she's sick -- and this year's Christmas scarf, which I gave her today.
SF/fantasy writer. English professor. Episcopalian. Licensed lay preacher. Hospital volunteer offering spiritual care in the ER. Spinner, weaver, knitter.
And a few other things, less easily labeled. The title of this blog is a phrase John Clute used to describe the plots of my first two novels. It both amused and annoyed me, and I finally decided to reclaim it as a badge of honor. Would you prefer rickety contrivances of doing bad?
