Ballad of the Christmas Knitter

(to the tune of “I Feel Pretty”)
by Knitter Beyond Hope (aka me)

I’ll be knitting
I’ll be knitting
I’ll be sitting and knitting all night
And I’m fretting
That my measurements won’t turn out right

It’s two colors
It’s two colors
My first sock and first colorwork too
And I’m thinking
That I’ve bitten more than I can chew.

(bridge)
Who is this dumb sock for anyhow?
It would fit a giant, you see
No time to rip out, got to get it done, got to get it under the tree!

I’m short-rowing
I’m short-rowing
I’m short-rowing and going insane
All this wrapping
And I’m dropping stitches like the rain.

Now it’s growing
Now it’s growing
And the pattern is really quite fine
And I’m wishing
That this sock was going to be mine.

(bridge)
Who is this dumb sock for anyhow?
It would fit a giant, you see
No time to rip out, got to get it done, got to get it under the tree!

Now I’m ribbing
Now I’m ribbing
And it’s giving me some hope at last
That this sock will one day be a thing of the past!
