This post is a belated thank you to my sister-in-law Martine.
What was even more concerning was the subsequent series of packages I received the following week: knitted legs, guts, a rat, a head, a disembowelled torso, bloody bandages, tattered clothes, and arms, each accompanied by another note with a terrible, dismemberment-related one-liner (Is this doing your head in? This is costing me an arm and a leg… Can you stomach much more of this?… you get the idea).
Long story short – when I unwrapped the last parcel and put all the bits together, this little fellow appeared. A cracking knitted zombie, courtesy of Martine. So this is a huge public thank you to Martine who must have spent hour after hour knitting, then cutting out letters from newspapers to make the (slightly terrifying) accompanying notes. I was seriously disturbed!
Right, now I need to find something equally bizarre and horrific to send back. Any ideas?
