A Nefarious Package

"Tell wind and fire where to stop, but don't tell me!"
- Madame Defarge

Package number two arrived from the oh so fabulous Nefarious Yarn Club. The honor for this round goes to fellow knitter.......Madame Defarge.

She is a villainous character in Charles Dickens novel A Tale of Two Cities. Our evil knitster was a cruel revolutionary whose hatred of the aristocracy fueled her tireless crusade. Madame Defarge spends a good deal of the novel knitting a register of everyone who must die for the revolutionary cause. Unlike her husband, she proves unrelentingly blood-thirsty, and her lust for vengeance knows no bounds

The stitch marker on this one is a guillotine.
