Knitters or Crocheters Anthem


Saturday, August 24, 2013

Cast off your cares and woes, set your needles free
come with me to doze and dream beneath the knitters' tree.
We'll spin ourselves a yarn that we've got stacks of cash
to fill a gigantic barn with an ever-increasing stash.

Visit a local yarn store, for it's therapy if you're sick
Why pay shrinks and doctors when more yarn will do the trick?

We'll knit ourselves a planet with a gauge of perfect order
every nation will be patterned with a wavy aran border.
We'll twist on moss stitch mountain and climb a cabled tree
swim in the sapphire picot edging of a bobble-patterned sea

Don't listen to trouble, don't give way to fears,
Purl away your problems, knit away your tears.

So if you feel the itch and need to get your fingers going
Just open up that pattern book and get those yarns a-flowing
But if your rows are tight and you want to just hang loose
Always park your needles before you hit the juice

The sky will be fairisle with a big intarsia sun
the flora will be cashmere and the buttonholes will be fun.
Our homes will be rainbow-colored, with yarns hand-painted and dyed
we'll knit spaghetti for our supper and in a cable car we'll ride

Visit a local yarn store, for it's therapy if you're sick
Why pay shrinks and doctors when more yarn will do the trick?

We'll cast on many friendships and we'll knit them up real tight
And get together often and party all the night
We'll lift our glasses joyfully and knit the whole town red
Cos when it comes to the good times, knitting's streets ahead!

Don't listen to trouble, don't give way to fears,
Purl away your problems, knit away your tears.
Visit a local yarn store, for it's therapy if you're sick
Why pay shrinks and doctors when more yarn will do the trick?

    Like it, and it's true there is so much therapy making things with yarn.
