Here’s your Monday smile – it’s limerick time. Send in your own or here’s a prompt for you –
Here are a few limericks to make you smile this Monday. The prompt was KNIT from a couple of weeks ago.
My writing will oft make me smile
Though editing’s just not my style.
If I could just knit
Or crochet a bit
I’d at least turn out something worthwhile.
I’ve been putting on weight. Just a bit.
The back of my pants has just split
You may think that’s it’s funny
But I ain’t got no money
And can’t sew. And nor can I knit.
I spend all my time here just sitting
All day long I just sat here, just knitting
To enhance my enjoyment
I embraced unemployment
Even that I just ended up quitting.
To make a beret, that will suit you
I’ll knit a few rows of some bright blue
A line of sunny yellow
And reds, really mellow
Followed on by a gold and purple hue!
A word to the wise
If you can’t get a jumper your size
I’ll ask my nan
Of whom I’m her greatest fan
And she’ll knit you one as a surprise.
There once was a girl that could knit
But missing a stitch, threw a fit
Her mother yelled out,
“Don’t be such a lout”
So instead she stomped off in a snit!
That human threw a horrendous fit
It takes patience to learn how to knit
Our skill evolves with time
Unlike a spinning dime
Our project increases with each sit.
Knitting? I can’t, I’m a-frayed.
If only my needles obeyed!
When I stitched a line,
They promptly declined;
They and Crochet Hook just played.
I ruminate till brows are knit
Thoughts entangle, won’t settle, quit
Seems mind has ‘purled two’, lost a stitch
If only brain had on-off switch
Maybe just need to nap for a bit.
