My favourite 'knitting' line is a John Lennon put-down in the film A Hard Day's Night when the fusspot studio floor assistant comes on in a big outsize woolly sweater. George says his mother knitted it, and sardonic John says, She knitted him! Then straight into, 'If I trust in you, oh please.... The fabulous knitting brothers from Liverpool! Yeah yeah yeah!





KNITTING


You made me laugh with your knitting,
knitting jackets, socks and caps.

Will you come to my Fair Isle country
and knit me a jumper?
Will you knit me a new life?
Through the town, leave a wool
trail for me to follow
that leads to your house.

In my knitted sweater, I'll climb the stairs,
you'll unknot my knitted brows,
and, because you have no time now
to knit, I'll take over the needles
and knit us a blanket
so we can keep warm,
and maybe one night,
at the end of the day,
our bones will knit together.

Your stuff almost makes me laugh out loud, Joe! This is SO cute! Hope you're not still talking about your mother, though?! No childhood umbilical that needs disconnecting somewhere?! Only jokin! This has a wonderful "Wallace and Grommit"-type touch; Grommit upstairs in the flat, winding his ball of wool which happens to have Wallace's ever-shrinking jumper attached to the other end of it! Fabulous Friday Feel to this one, Pal! Lovin it KB
