A Christmas Poem for Knitters

I’m not a poet, but I just wanted to share my poem. I think it sums up that rush for the finish we all seem to share this time of year.


It’s Christmas time again and thus,
the knitters all begin to cuss.

Bake the cookies and the cakes!
Cut out some paper snowflakes!
Knock those WIPs out, one by one.
This holiday goal won’t be undone!

Deck the halls and wind yarn balls,
cast off some hats – put bows on cats!
Bind off the toes with much affection,
short row shape the front main section.

Make it work, you can do it.
Find a way, just push through it!
You have support from every friend,
but if it comes down to the end…

And you are beaten by the clock,
it’s actually hip to gift one sock.
