Head to Toe

This is a repeat for my regular readers (from this post here), but when I saw the prompt for the Magpie I just couldn't resist!


A needle (or two –
if you are a knitter).
An hour or ten –
you aren’t a quitter!
A scarf, a hat,
a loverly shawl,
mittens & sweaters –
imagine them all.

In front of the TV.
On your lunch break at work.
While your children are sleeping.
Till you come to with a jerk.

Everyone you know
is covered head to toe.

Sigh.

Maybe…

Your nephew’s girlfriend’s mother
could use a scarf.

  2. When I told you I'd accept anything you were willing to knit for me I was wrong; please don't knit me one of these.
