Amazing Lace - Challenge #3 - Poetry

Okay.

A Po-em .... by Dave.

With pic-tures .... also by Dave.


Ahem.



There once was a knitter of socks

who tried to knit outside his box.



He knit and he purled.

The shawl, it unfurled.



"Zounds!" declared he ... this lace ROCKS!



Official team portrait, Leg 3: Charts 2 & 3, Row 97, and lookee-see what I got:

Butterfly butt !!

13 people had something to say:

Great poem and good progress! I see you've got some lifelines in now too. I'm watching closely to learn all about lace knitting from you for when I get brave enough for a shawl. So far I've learned, be careful with charts, and use those lifelines. :)

Your limerick in between the knitting photos made me smile :-) Well done! (says a poetic knit-wit who has mastered 114 different poetry forms thus far :-) )
