If it’s cold outside and you live in Maine
You might want to make a hat.
You need wool, a pattern, needles to knit,
A marker or two, and a cat.
The pattern is easy to find online,
The wool is a hank I bought.
But the needles must be the right size, you know,
And for them I have endlessly sought.
My basket of needles was all in a jumble,
And I gasped at the tangle inside,
For I couldn’t find the ones that I needed
No matter how hard I tried.
“Aha!” shouted I. “I know just the thing!
I can sew up a neat little case
With pockets inside for each little size,
Every one of them in the right place.”
So I pulled out my fabric and measured and cut
And pinned and ironed and sewed.
A case was soon made for my needles to live in,
Each one in its proper abode.
And now I can show you my sweet little project
All finished and tidy and done.
My needles were quickly tucked into place
And my knitting will be much more fun!
I suppose you are wondering at my little rhyme
And why I might need a cat –
The rhyme is for fun but my lap is still cold,
It would be nice if the cat came and sat. 🙂
*Thanks for coming to visit and reading my story. I hope you’ll stay for a while.
My rhymes are awful, but the writing is fun and I hope I brought you a smile.
