Ode to My New Swift

To the Tune of James Blunt's "You're Beautiful"

My stash is lovely.
My stash is pure.
But it's all in skeins.
Of that I'm sure.
You smiled at me on JoAnn's.
You were priced a little high.
But I won't worry a bit about that,
Just print the coupon before I buy.

(Chorus):
You're beautiful. You're functional.
You're practical, it's true.
Tangled skeins won't cause me pains,
And I know just what to do,
'Cause I won't wind yarn without you.

Yes, you caught my eye,
As I clicked on by.
You could see from my face that I was,
Frustrated by
The constant fight with a tangle of "string".
But with you I'll never go through that again.

(Chorus):
You're beautiful. You're useful.
You're helpful, it's true.
Tangled skeins won't cause me pains,
And I know just what to do,
'Cause I won't wind yarn without you.


(La-la-la-la, La-la-la-la, La-la-la-la, Laaah)

(Chorus):
You're beautiful. You're valuable.
You're beneficial, it's true.
The knitting goddess has a smile on her face
I won't curse her if I'm using you.

I hope this becomes the truth...
I will knit more using you.

The Swift

Edited to add a picture. The set up isn't great. But the swift definitely is!

I just finished winding a ball by hand, with an ever more tangled unwound skein around my neck.

Very lovely swift and song!
