On Top of Mount Wooly

On top of Mount Wooly

All covered with sheep

I lost my sock needle

Getting out of my Jeep

*

It rolled off my lap

And onto the floor

And then my poor needle

Rolled right out the door

*

It rolled to the pasture

And under a fence

Then under the hooves

Of a ruminant defense

*

I howled in frustration

I stamped and I stormed

Then I ran from the ruminants

So I wouldn’t get horned

*

I went back to the car

And took up my sock

With only four needles

I could still make it work  [Brooklyn accent here]

*

Driving away from Mount Wooly

I began to regroup

And vowed that next time

I’d try Magic Loop

  1. I looked everywhere for the sock needle I lost. My husband looked under the bed; I moved the chairs and baskets to look under and behind them….I gave up and hunted down another needle to use. When I started knitting again, I reached up to push my hair out of my eyes and found the needle–stuck in my hair!

  2. I can so identify. I was already down to four needles when, without setting my knitting down, I went to check on my grandchildren playing in another room and a needle dropped out of my sock and fell down the floor grate to the furnace. I don’t think there’s a good method for knitting a sock with three DP needles. I hope the other set I found in the stash are the same size.
