And Now For Something Completely Different - 2KCBWDAY5

A few of my inspiring things
With Apologies to Rogers & Hammerstein

Bright coloured shawlettes and warm woollen mittens,
Living in Yorkshire, the best bit of Britain!
Squishy yarn parcels all tied up with string,
These are a few of my inspiring things.

Nice chocolate biscuits and hot mugs of tea,
Radio Seven and pretty things to see,
Lunch on the grass, a little cloud spotting,
These are a few of my inspiring things.

Learning new things and what fellow knitters do
Especially the guru and demi-guru
Watching my loved ones knitting or sewing
These are a few of my inspiring things

When the yarn's tight,
When needles sting,
When it makes me mad,
I simply remember these inspiring things
And then I don't feel so bad.


  1. I love the sound of music.My grandparents had this tea party ball thing when I was little and they had us learn the goodnight song the kids sing at the party so we could sing it at their party...not fun, I can't sing.

  2. I LOVE it!!!

    I've been waiting all day to see what you'd do, I knew that whatever it was it'd be good.

  3. And because that wasn't quite enough love, I love that you really touched on all your favourite things! And no apologies required - you dun good girl.

  4. Lovely! I sang along! See if you can sing along with mine!

  5. Oh, my all time favorite musical! Thanks for the song!

  6. hahahaha demi-guru :D love the pictures :D
