Poem for Writer's Cramp 10.27.2017 (20 lines)Chunky Yarn, Needle size 25, orange, cardigan
The smell of fall is in the air,
The color orange is everywhere.
The time has come once again
For the knitting fun to begin.

I raid the craft shop with blissful glee,
As my social life begins to flee.
My friends all know where I’ll be,
Happy, just my chunky yarn and me.

I grab my needle size 25,
In my hand, it makes me feel alive.
I take the rim of yarn a part,
Make a ball first if you’re smart.

When I look upon myself,
Maybe I could be Santa’s elf,
I know I am a skilled artisan,
As I begin to knit my cardigan.

When it’s finished I’ll smile and say,
It seems like today was a productive day.
That’s all for now, the fun is through,
But I’ll begin tomorrow with yarn anew
