Rush of the ocean
Calm the people around it
With its soft, sweet sound

Hats Scarves Socks Afghan
Why’d I think I could do it
All by Christmas Day

Oh grand intentions!
My stocking doesn’t look right
and cost more to make

Late nights, bleary eyes
Why knit Christmastime away
for sis’ dog sweater?

stringing up popcorn
berries for our christmas tree
toddler chewed them all

Lights strung through the trees
Reminds me of my yarn stash
Calling me to knit

Working late at night
Knitting, sewing sugar plums
Dreaming of morning

it’s snowing again.
christmas sweaters can be ugly,
but mine have tassels.

Five hats still to knit
Why didn’t I start in June?
Reach for the red wine

Homemade gifts, I pledge
Chunky hats, a single sock
It’s the thought that counts.

I hate the mall. So
I knit Fetchings, sweaters and
toys. Merry Christmas!
