This one was a lot harder. Enjoy!
Over in the doorway the new knitter stands,
clutching her bag in her warm sweaty hands
Someone turns and sees her, and lets out a cry
"Come and join us, come on in, there's no need to be shy."
Click go the needles, click, click, click
Yarn balls they dance and the hands move quick.
The knitting group can fill the room with fun and laughter loud
And sew things up and run ends in and show them off so proud.
In the middle of the group in her comfortable chair
The old knitter sits, with her eyes everywhere.
Notes well each loop as it comes to the tip
Paying strict attention if the stitch should start to slip.
Over by the table the fair-isle knitter sits
Grasping her circs underneath her ample tits
Fixed is her gaze on her pattern and its chart
She needs to concentrate to make the colours stand apart.
The dish-cloth knitter's working hard, for her it's complex stuff
Back and forth and back and forth she find the going tough
Looking at the the others, as they spread their work out wide
"I wish that I could make that, but I've never ever tried."
The dedicated sock-knitter works round and round and round
She's made the pomatomous and a lacey one she's found
Jaywalker's next, she's going to try a new yarn called Melange
And then she'll make some baby booties just for a change.
There's 'viral' patterns now, that fly around the internet
There's Clapotis, French market bag, the Rogue of course, Sonnet
There's magazines like Interweave, and Vogue and Yarn (you pay)
But then for free there's knitty and the blogs to surf all day.
The lacey scarves and shawls come off the needles in a flash
And everybody's looking for new ways to bust the stash
With log cabin afghans that get slowly slowly done
And scarves in stripes so easy that they're 'knitting on the run'.
There we leave them sitting, working, laughing, full of fun
Their busy lives suspended while they get some knitting done.
The knitting group's a great idea, and catching on real quick
Look out in pubs and shops and cafes... click click click.
