The 12 Days of Knitmas...
Hi, everyone!

I wrote this a couple of years ago for this forum and it's become kind of a tradition for me to share with you around this time every year. Sorry if it gets stuck in your head, but enjoy it anyway!

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

Have a wonderful holiday season and a healthy, happy and peace-filled New Year!
