Wordful Wednesday: The Family That Dries Together...

There was something poetical about this image that made me take this photo.
I never put our wool or wool-blend sweaters in the dryer, and since it was cold and damp yesterday I couldn't hang them outside. I put my favorite sage green cowl-neck sweaters and Mr. Geek's grey one on the radiator and then clipped SoJo's onto ours to dry. As I was sitting on the floor folding laundry, I glanced over and found the image quite poignant. I guess that's the sentimental poet in me.

Laundry Haiku
Three sweaters hang. Two
big, one small. Knitted family
soaking up steam heat.

{forgive the artistic license from the 5-7-5 syllable guideline}. I'm so thankful for my sweater family, and of course, the real one that fits inside the sweater one! In case you don't hear from me before Thursday, Happy Thanksgiving!
