Temperatures Rise…accusations fly

Sitting peacefully in the Bay at 8 AM…a hazy prediction of a sultry day

It’s a sultry day in Searsport…predictions of high eighty’s in the shade…Searsport Shores owners Mr. & Mrs. Tanguay suspect that the recent yarn bomb attack may account for fewer than expected visitors last night.

Mrs. Mary Gelinas of the Mohawk trail was quoted as saying that she and her husband love the thrill of danger and decided to extend their stay at the campground a couple more nights in hopes of catching a glimpse of the bomber during the night…they were alone on the front row.

Although no official accusations have been made, there is strong suspicion that a certain Karen Jelenfy of Washington Maine is responsible for the fibery attack. Neighbors have cast the eye of doubt upon this attractive, artistic woman noting that she spends a great deal of her time among used books, goats and children…quietly working out ways to change the world.  Owner Astrig Tanguay is still hesitant to condemn or condone this behaviour, noting that neither the Searsport Shores Blog nor the Fiber College blog are listed on Ms. Jelenfy’s favorite blog list.

A pink celebration on the way to the beach

More updates to follow as information is confirmed.  In other news, the Rhodos are bursting 3 full weeks ahead of schedule on the path down the beach and the natural dyeing obsession has struck hard, possibly due to excessive pollen counts.  Last night, a dye bath was made of the weeds from the garden…primarily soapwort and wild Canterbury bells…yielding a mediocre yellow dye with an alum mordant.

  1. If journalists & writers sensationalize this sort of thing, they only encourage MORE furtive knitting activity! Plus, think of the COPYCATS out there, absorbing this info for their copycat crimes…
