Seeking Someone to Warm Up

Hello, I’m Susie. I moved to the Midwest from Texas in late 2011, but it wasn’t until late 2012 that it really felt like home. Now, I love Chicago; it’s my own “sweet home” because it’s where I realized what I would become. (It doesn’t hurt that my opportunities to warm chilly hands are numerous here with the fickle weather and long winters.)

My size is on the smaller side, but I’m tough with excellent stitch definition. I’m gray, but I’m not gloomy–there’s a rainbow of colours shining under that overdye if you’ll just give me a chance.

I’m a little vain, so I’m not interested in activities that might make me snag. I tend to pill under pressure; it’s embarrassing, but it’s true. I’ve got tight twist, so I knit up a little stiff, but I softened up after some quality time washing and blocking. That’s the best way to get to know me–talk to me sweetly and soak me in wool wash and cool water, then lay flat to dry. If I’m acting grumpy, it’s a good way to get me back in shape and good humor. It’s also fantastic as a treat any day just to show me that you care. It’s a spa experience that I never get tired of.

My favourite way to spend an afternoon is cuddled up with someone special and a good book. I’m just the right length to avoid interfering with page-turning, and I won’t obscure your fingers, but drafts won’t be a problem. I love to cozy around a mug of warm tea or coffee, absorbing the heat and relaxing. It’s a warmth that you’ll feel even when the beverage is gone, because I’ve got the power of wool on my side.

Once we’re together, you’ll wonder how you managed so long without me. Cold hands with frozen fingers will be a thing of the past.
