And Now for Something Completely Different: 2AKCBWDay5

And now for something completely different. This is an experimental blogging day to try and push your creativity in blogging to the same level that you perhaps push your creativity in the items you create. There are no rules of a topic to blog about (though some suggestions are given below) but this post should look at a different way to present content on your blog. This can take one of many forms, but here a few suggestions:
  • Wordless, photographic post
  • Video blog post
  • Podcast
  • Cartoon/sketch of an idea
  • Write about a subject from a different perspective (for example, you could write about a day in the life of a knitted sock from the point of view of the sock).
  • Interpretive modern dance (why does someone always suggest this?
  • A poem or piece of rhyming verse
  • Stop motion animation

I think that I shall never see

A yarn as lovely as on my nee(dles)


Oh Yarn! My Yarn! Our fearful sweater is done;

Our needles have weather'd the project; the prize we sought is won;

The blocking is near, the bells I hear, the knitters all exulting;

While follow eyes the steady hand, the cabling grim and daring;

But oh heart! heart! heart!

Oh the bloody dropped stitches in red,

Where on the blocking board my Sweater lies,

Frogged cold and dead.


  1. What fun, its an awesome poem

  2. Great expression of what happens to the best of us and our projects!

  3. Thanks go out to anonymous and Walt Whitman for the inspiration! (as well as yarn)
