Everyone, right now, regardless of if you’re familiar with it or not, read this blog post from Allie Brosh’s Hyperbole and a Half. It’s hilarious and great. I’ll wait.

Everyone back?

Now, if you don’t know me, I’m sort of obsessed with grammar and punctuation. So when people misspell “a lot” as “alot”, I have to take Allie’s advice and picture an alot (so my blood pressure doesn’t skyrocket and I have a stroke or something).

So it was fitting, when I was bored with my knitting the other day, that I embroider up my own alot.


I used mostly back stitch and a couple of french knots (cause that’s how I do) in two colors of DMC floss with a tiny bit of crayon shading. I found the frame yesterday at the thrift and picked it up along with a couple others, similar vintage and size, for future embroidery projects.

I love this alot. And I like his face:


So remember people. It’s “a lot”. Unless it’s “alot”.
