Hi, everyone! :waving:

Well, the holidays are upon us (WHERE did the year go?) and I wanted to get an early start on the festivities, so I wrote this for all of us to have fun with. Enjoy!

The 12 Days of Knitmas
(Sung, of course, to the Twelve Days of Christmas!)

On the first day of Knitmas, my true love gave to me...

Some sock yarn in a pear tree;

2nd day - Two needles clicking ...
3rd day -Three stitch row counters ...
4th day -Four point protectors ...

5th day - Five marker rings!

6th day - Six double pointeds ...
7th day - Seven Yarn Shoppe coupons ...
8th day - Eight hanks of mohair
9th day - Nine knitting patterns
10th day -10 wires for blocking
11th day - 11 “How to Knit” books
12th day - 12 maids for housework

Hi! :waving:

I have a suggestion for knitters' Christmas wish list...

Print the song out and post it on your fridge. When anyone asks, just tell them you're dreaming of a wonderful Knitmas! :roflhard:

You might even want to underline certain things in red (like the 12 maids for housework?) to emphasize them on your list!!!

Hope this helps everyone have an abundant Knitmas!
