The Knitters' Christmas

'Twas December the 8th, and all through the house
The knitters were gathered, but none were "quiet as a mouse!"

They all came in and took off their shoes,

Dropped off snacks in the kitchen, and with no time to lose...

They got straight to the knitting, in twos...

...and in threes;

They talked, knit and laughed as loud as they pleased!

They knit small, delicate stitches,

and bigger ones, more easy...

Then someone said, "Let's eat!," and they all said, "Yes! Please-y!"

Salty and sweet, veggies, grains and meats;

Cookies, by the dozens, and savory treats!

My favorite were the penguins...standing tall and straight -

I simply had to have one, and man!, he tasted great!

The hostess's stockings hung by the hearth - warm, yet so "chill,"
And the gift bags sat waiting to see what would be their fill.

The youngest to attend was this little one,

The knitters all took turns snuggling,

then they were on the run...

It's time for the annual sock photo, "Let's go!"
"Now everyone get in here! (Is Corrie still at her show?)"

No matter, her foot is there, can you guess which one it is?
Maybe? Maybe not! Photoshop is "the shiz!"

Once the photo was taken, there was more grazing on snacks,
Then it was time to see what was in their gift sacks!

The trinkets and tokens, as usual, were fantastic!
These knitters are amazing, fabulous and craft-tastic!!!

They knitted and ate until daylight was gone,

In their hand-knitted socks, then, they headed for home.

It's December, you see, and there is so much to do,
And one knitter had "shenanigans" she still had to get through.
But I heard her exclaim, as she drove out of sight,
"Knit in Good Health, friends! And to all a good night!"

My apologies for some of the photo quality issues...I should have brought my regular camera. Still, there are some pretty good shots, and if nothing else, GREAT NEW MEMORIES! What a great party, Cleveland Knits West! Thanks to all of you!
