She learned to knit on Monday
Her stitches were very fine.
She forgot to thaw out dinner,
so we went out to dine.

She knitted socks on Tuesday.
She says they are a must.
They really were quite lovely,
But she forgot to dust.

On Wednesday, it was an afghan
She says jacquard is fun.
What colors!! What textures!!
But the laundry wasn't done.

Her Knit-weave was on Thursday,
Green, yellow, blue and red.
I guess she really was engrossed,
She never made the bed.

It was wall hangings on Friday
In colors she adores.
It never bothered her at all
The crumbs on all the floors.

I found a maid on Saturday
My week is now complete.
My wife can knit the hours away,
The house will still be neat.'s already Sunday
And I'm about to throw a fit.
I've cursed, I've raved, I've ranted
The MAID has learned to KNIT!!!

Pay It Forward

I've always wanted to do this and Thanksgiving seems like a good time for it.

Here are the rules:

I will send a gift to a random person (my son will pull the name) who leaves a comment on my blog between now and November 30 requesting to join this PAY IT FORWARD exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

I don't know what the gift will be yet, I only know it will be something I'd like to receive. Whoever the winner is, I will hopefully find clues in their blog as to what they'd love. :-)

All I ask is that is you commit to the idea wholeheartedly and pay it forward on your own blog!

Cat Bed

My cat sleeps on a knitted blanket on the couch almost all the time. I found a pattern for a pet bed in "Knit Simple" (Snug Harbor by Rae French) and thought she'd love it. I finished it last week and put it on the couch instead of her blankie. She didn't like it at all and so we put the blankie back and the cat bed next to it. She still won't go near it. I'm giving it to a friend who has two kitties. Maybe they'll like it.

Anne is hosting a contest. She's asking for us to share three of our favorite patterns. The fun thing about this contest is seeing all the patterns everyone else loves. Maybe I'll find my next favorite. :-)

If I can knit for Kansas I can certainly knit for California

All those fires blazing around us. I know of many that were evacuated but everyone was eventually able to return to their homes. There are so many who had no home to go back to..... I can't even begin to imagine.

I found this blog today and tonight after work I'll start knitting.
