6KCBWDAY5: Something Almost Different

Joie de Vivre Tarot

Alll-most there - day 5 out of 7, and today's 6th Annual Knitting & Crochet Week prompt is:

Day Five (Friday 15th May): Something A Bit Different
It’s the annual challenge to blog in a way different to how you normally blog. You may choose to create a podcast, or vlog, create a wordless post, a beautiful infographic or write in verse. You can post on any topic you like, but be sure to post in a style different from your usual blog presentation. There’s not too much guidance for this one simply because the more varied the posts are on this day, the wider the sources of information for other bloggers will be.

          There was an old woman from Ipswich
         Who spent some time learning to slip stitch;
         Once she had learned how
         She said, 'Look at me now -
         Crocheting without even one glitch !'

I know.

I am sorry.

I am so sorry.

 I am very sorry. 

I am so very sorry.

I am so very, very sorry.

I am ... you get the idea.

Really, I am so apologetic I might even be English. But after the haikus and cinquains of recent years, this poor limerick is all I could come up with.

As a reward - or maybe it is punishment - I shall again offer you the opportunity to also inflict mental and emotional abuse on my readers (as I did here) by submitting your very own verse: it can be any accepted form of verse, for example, iambic pentameter, epigram, haiku, sonnet, etc. ... The winner will receive a marvellous mystery prize from me.

Conditions of Entry:

 Open to international entries
Closing date Fri.22nd May
Winner will be chosen by random number generator.
Winner will be announced on the blog.
Please make sure I can contact you for your address.

There will be many interesting offerings today - find them by putting 6KCBWDAY5 into Google.


  1. *rolling around on floor after being assaulted by a completely unrestrained limerick * :-D

    1. Here's a poem: Haiku

      Needles clattering
      Skin soft yarn unfurling
      Socks for baby feet


  2. *snortle* Don't think I could have done any better, but Limericks are harder than they seem :D

  3. I love it!
    Here is my effort...

    Crochet, I love you
    How much? I can only say
    in Haiku

  4. Very funny! ��

  5. Now moving on to more challenging stitches ... :)

  7. There once was a Lady O'Doole
    Who found little red spots on her wool
    Her friend was a cynic
    said Get out this minute,
    And wash off that lipstick you fool!

  8. There once was a tired old lady
    Who'd been quite cute in her heyday
    But time took its toll
    She was round as a bowl
    But once she was queen of the mayday

  9. Sorry it's been so long! Please don't consider this an entry - it alreay won me a prize in the far distant past.

    Little unmatched sock!
    Was your mate lost in dryer
    or just never knit?

    Take care and stay well - love you much.

  10. Babies everywhere
    Needles can not be silent
    Fetal position

  11. I wandered lonely as a sock
    Because I could not stop for yarn
    To knit or not to knit
    I heard the pattern singing
    Whose needles these are I think I know
    She knits in beauty like the night
    Shawls well that ends well.

Thanks ! I love comments :-)
