I (sometimes) call myself Mr. Pondersome. I'm a rather wordy, weirdy person. I say hullo a lot. I write a lot more. While you're here, why not give some of it a read?

"Knitting Wool" (a.k.a. A Last-Minute Poem for the National Day)

I came up with this almost exactly a day ago. Considering that it's National Poetry Day and I haven't really written any other poems lately, I've decided to post it now.

It's an acrostic. It's about knitting. It probably doesn't make a lot of sense. Sorry about that.


Knit or purl 2 stitches together
is usually done on
tweedy wool.

Textured fabric
is usually
graded in different sizes.

Wool for wind-cheating -
one yarn or another
or another,
left and held at the back.
