Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers. Hope you all had a good one.

Well after all this time I finally have a picture of me I am willing to share. I have recently had my haircut, it was way longer before. Its not too bad so I thought it was time to share. Just need to get the avatar changed now I think.

Update to previous post, sorry not in poem form. It would seem I am only inspired by disaster!
Problems rectified and Eloise is done. She sadly is spoken for and I might have a problem parting with her.
I am building a little list of folk wanting to adopt my ellies. Please do let me know if you would like one. Every one will be unique, I do not like to make any the same as before(just like people really). Each one takes me around a week. Not solid knitting you understand. I unfortunately have to go to work and clean the house occasionally. I will be able to tell you an approximation of when your new arrival will be due.

A Knitters Tale of Woe

Here begins a tale of woe
A journey on which no knitter should go.
Having knitted many rabbits and bears
A knitter embarked on the 2nd elephant with ears.
She stuffed and stitched but soon became
aware said ears were not the same!
The left was smaller than the right
and tho the knitter tried with all her might,
she could not make it look the best
and would have to give up her quest.
There was no other course of action,
than to perform some minor subtraction.
She unpicked the larger with what she thought was care
to replace with a smaller ear.
Then, oh no, utter disaster!
Unravelling fast and faster.
One wrong snip, the hole was forming
on the head till it was gaping and yawning!
The vocabulary used was both graphic and vast!
The entire family were aghast!
Two evenings clicking, gone to waste,
No she could not `just stick and paste`!
One ear was salvaged, tea was made.
Salving nerves so cruelly frayed.
The knitter started on a brand new head
which she would finish before going to bed.
The lesson learned, `check before you sew`,
or on this tedious journey you also will go.
