ode to my red oblique cardigan

Please indulge my dorkiness.....


(To the tune of "Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes", by Edison Lighthouse)....


It looks kinda dozy,
but it's so warm and cosy,
this sweater that was made by me...

Oh, and love grows where my Red Oblique goes,
and nobody knows like me.

Sure I made a few gaffes,
But it keeps out the cold drafts,
and others know it's plain to see...

Oh, that love grows where my Red Oblique goes,
and nobody knows like me.

The sleeves have stretched to just past my knees,
still it keeps out the breeze,
when I walk out the door....

It lengthens every time that it's worn,
but I scoff at the scorn,
'cause like never before.....

I can say "I did it!"
and people know I've knit it,
it's just so wonderful to me..

Oh, 'cause love grows where my Red Oblique goes,
and nobody knows like me.

Oh, yes, love grows where my Red Oblique goes,
and nobody knows like me.


Dear Red Oblique sweater:



I love you,

Love, me.


Pattern: Oblique by Veronik Avery, Knitty: Fall, 2007
