Needles, Hooks and Books



Sewing is not my thing to do,
I get bored with just a stitch or two.
Embroidery sure isnít my cup of tea,
Threading those needles is hard to see.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Making doilies of lace with crochet hooks,
And reading those patterns is harder than it looks.
YO and SC, and , all those little abbreviations,
Donít help one bit with my creations.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And Iíve tried those needles with which to knit,
I made a sweater and my foot it did fit.
A stitch in time saves nine, so they say,
And save your money for a rainy day.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well, Iíll take my time and my pennies too
And shop till I drop. Itís MY thing to do.
So, donít give me a needle or one of those hooks.
After I drop from shopping, Iíll curl up with my books
