Bestest Friends in the WORLD! AAAND contest!

I really have fabulous friends. The friend who is getting married? Yeah, she’s the queen of the lot. By the way, her name is Miriam too… so that’s why I don’t refer to her by name…. so I all her Nametwin… so that’s how I’ll probably refer to her through this whole shawl knitting process. It was she that I visited in Philadelphia. I got an e-mail from her:

She: what is a good motivational phrase about knitting?

Me: good motivational phrase about knitting? I don’t know! Umm…. If it sucks, you can always rip it out? I have no idea… sorry!

She: hrm. not quite what I was looking for…. I’ll just have to make up one of my own…

And then she sends me these (you must click to embiggen):

Aaaand she just sent me another one.*hugs her nametwin* Just for that you get an extra EXTRA special shawl 😉
Way to make the best of a mediocre day!META: OK, so I got an idea to make a contest of this. I want a motivational post of THIS image:

So… leave me a comment for the motivational (or demotivational) message to go with this image. It should be in the form of one word first (the big text) and then a bit underneath. Leave it in the comments, I’ll choose the one I like the best and send out a prize. OK? Make sure your e-mail is included so I can choose the winner. I’ll close the contest on Friday, November 10th at midnight Mountain time. GO!
