A Song for Knitters

There was a stretch a good while back where it seemed that all my blog comments were coming out as song parodies, ranging from a line or two up to whole stanzas. For this year's silent poetry reading I've expanded one of them to the whole song, and I present the result here for your delectation.

You must remember this,
It's yarn we can't resist,
No matter how we try:
The pull of wool will never die,
As time goes by.

And when two knitters meet
They'll check each other's feet
And handknit socks descry,
Wool socks will always keep us warm
As time goes by.

Shawls, hats and sweaters,
Never out of date,
Yarns of alpaca,
Yak, and wool are great,
Right glove needs left
And left must have its mate,
That no one can deny!

It's still the same old story,
We knit for love, not glory,
A case of spin and ply,
The world will always welcome knitters,
As time goes by.


  • I love it, but you know tune's going to be stuck in everyone's head now ;)

  • I started crooning it out loud and turned around to see all five cats lined up and staring at me. Laughed my backside off!

  • Kept meaning to get back here and tell you how seriously awesome that was. And kept forgetting. But it is. Awesome, that is.
