12 Knitting Days of Christmas

I am not a writer or a poet but I had fun writing this little ditty. Please sing the following to the tune of 12 Days Of Christmas. Enjoy!

The 12 Days of Knitting

On the first day of knitting I gathered all my yarn, grabbed knitting needles and I very quickly cast on.

On the second of knitting I gathered all my yarn, Two warm afghans and One lacey shawl

On the third day of knitting I gathered all my yarn, 3 wool hats, two warm afghans and One lacey shawl

On the fourth day of knitting I gathered all my yarn, 4 soft sweaters, 3 wool hats, two warm afghans and One lacey shawl.

On the fifth day of knitting I gathered all my yarn , a bot-tle of wine, 4 soft sweaters, 3 wool hats, two warm afghans and One lacey shawl

On the 6th day of knitting I gathered all my yarn, 6 pair of gloves, a bot-tle of wine, 4 soft sweaters, 3 wool hats, two warm afghans and One lacey shawl

On the 7th day of knitting I gathered all my yarn, 7 fair isle mitts, 6 pair of gloves, a bot-tle of wine, 4 soft sweaters, 3 wool hats, two blankets and One lacey shawl

On the 8th day of knitting I gathered all my yarn, 8 fuzzy scarves, 7 fair isle mitts, 6 pair of gloves, a bot-tle of wine, 4 soft sweaters, 3 wool hats, two warm afghans and one lacey shawl

On the 9th day of knitting I gathered all my yarn, 9 little snowmen, 8 fuzzy scarves, 7 fair ilse mitts, 6 pairs of gloves , a bot-tle of wine, 4 soft sweaters, 3 wool hats, 2 warm afghans and one lacey shawl

On the 10th (hiccup) day of knitting I gathered all my yarn, 10 knitted toys, 9 little snowmen, 8 fuzzy scarves, 7 fair isle mitts, 6 pairs of gloves, a bot-tle of wine, 4 soft sweaters, 3 wool hats, 2 warm afghans and one lacey shawl

ON the 11th day (hiccup) of knitting I gathered all my yarn, 11 cotton cloths (hiccup), 10 knitted toys, 9 little snowmen, 8 fuzzy scarves, 7 fair isle mitts, 6 pair of gloves, a bot-tle (hiccup) of wine, 4 soft sweaters, 3 wool hats, 2 afghans and one lacey shawl.

On the 12th day (hiccup) of knitting the dog ate my yarn (hiccup), the pattern is lost, I don’t care, it’s too late in the year, needles disappeared, snowmen have melted (hiccup) frogged the fuzzy scarves, scrapped those mitts, unfinished gloves, a bot-tle of wine (hiccup), sweaters with no sleeves, huge wool hats, raveled afghans (hiccup) and forget that lace shawl!

P.S. And this explains why my Christmas gift knitting is not finished.........LOL

hee hee. Can I use that excuse, too? I broke down and bought gifts this year, everyone is going to realize that I don't have a million bucks but, Christmas is for giving...not receiving!
