Knitting Sampler

Why oh why do I insist on crafting, with a string and sticks?

Could it just be the thrill of art,  a perfect piece will soon impart?

Or maybe it’s the color blocks, or complex charts, that rock my socks.


One stick or two, what will I choose today, to drive away the blues?

Crochet is fun and fits the bill, when instant joy’s the cup to fill.

While knitting is a patience test the final piece is often best.


A baby blanket needs crochet spaces so babe can breathe in all places.

A cabled vest demands some chunk to warm its wearer round his trunk.

A lacy scarf displays the craft of artisan women, long since past.


Fingering, lacy, sport or spunk; a fiber must be in my trunk,

For soon I will be overrun by stash, ‘growing’ throughout my home.

(Unless my pup gets hold of one; pulling, strewing,  having fun!)


It matters not the day or week, or whether travel’s at its peak,

Inside my bag the kit must go..another sock to tell and show.

Alas I am obsessed, it’s true Aran or cashmere; pink or blue.



Raison d’être comes in clearly:  I love to give gifts to my “dearies”.

Even on this Springtime day, I’ll chart my projects – gifts to give away.

Thanks to Mom, she taught me well, she gave me life … and art, as well.
