Structural Simplicity

imageYarn over, two together, knit as one,
Despite mere silken threads, the structure stays,
Each filament enmeshed, complexly spun.

At outset seeming too complex for some,
Yet still, alluring grace lures all to play,
Yarn over, two together, knit as one.

One’s hesitance subsides when once begun,
As tender leaflets form a weblike spray,
Each filament enmeshed, complexly spun.

Each day another layer built upon,
Each week another segment on display,
Yarn over, two together, knit as one.

Begun with stitches three, increase ’til done,
As replicating patterns lead the way,
Each filament enmeshed, complexly spun.

Off-needles, blocked, each wisp-of-end neat sewn,
When puppy settles in, prepared to stay!
Each filament enmeshed, complexly spun
Yarn over, two together, knit as one.
Each filament enmeshed, complexly spun.

My “Bandit” settles in on my just-completed Haruni shawl. I don’t really mind, though, seeing the look of sheer contentment on his cute, little face. After all, this knitted masterpiece can withstand A few puppy snuggles because it is a marvel of simplicity and structural integrity.

      I know – it is amazing. Amazing to think that centuries ago some person decided to use spin the fibers from their animals and then knit it intuit warm practical garments or lovely lace thingies.
