Amazing Lace Poetry Challenge
The following comes directly from The Amazing Lace blog:
Challege #3: The Poetry Challenge
Poetry is a way of exploring the deeper essence of the human (and lace) selves, what it is that makes us human (or lace, as the case may be). Poetry can take many forms, from the classical dactylic hexameter to the haiku to free verse; it can rhyme or not rhyme; it can be written in the first, second, or third person. What all forms of poetry have in common is their ability to evoke a deep sentiment and emotion.
Your challenge: One poem, written by, for, or about your lace teammate posted to your blog (or photohosting account) by midnight EDT (UTC -4:00), July 2.
Hmmm. Poetry? They want me to be deep? Well, alright.
There once was a shawl knit of cotton
The pattern was called Lotus Blossom
The knitting went fast
Only two weeks had passed
And my teammate now points to my bottom
(you can see more photos of the shawl here)
Think that evokes enough deep sentiment and emotion?

Mwaahahahahaha! I come here for great literature.
Oh my! I’m glad my mouth wasn’t full.
You must be the next big poet; at least for knitters. 🙂
The shawl looks beautiful.
It’s more beautiful in person! (I LOVE saying that;-0)
You did a fabulous job and the cotton yarn made up better than I could have imagined. Wear it well. It looks sooooo good on you.
Nice! (Shawl and poem). Fast progress!
I LOVE IT! The cotton looks yummy and it’s a perfect size! Well done! So, are ya ready from some linen? 🙂
Now that’s a limerick I can appreciate! Well done (on the shawl and poem)!!
Giggles and grins over that! The shawl is beautiful.
The shawl is gorgeous, and you are hilarious! Love it! Here I am trying to come up with something so deep! Dont’t think I will be able to top that!
Too funny!!! I love it. It looks fabulous.
Too funny! I can’t believe how fast you knit that — awesome. There once was a man from Nantucket . . .
And the shawl looks great!
The shawl looks great 🙂
I think I just spit milk across the room. Too funny. And your shawl is stunning Carole! Just beautiful. And what a scenic spot to do a photoshoot!
Whoa! Where’d that shawl come from? Did you conjure it out of thin air or something? 😉
And the color… it’s to die for. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
ahh. the classic limerick. a personal favorite of mine.
the shawl is beautiful.
i once knew a man from nantucket
who carried his fleece in a bucket.
a fleece that once carole spied
was stolen right under his eye
he didn’t bother chasing her, he just said *&^% it
*snort* Eeeeehxcellent poem 🙂 But the pictures don’t do it justice! Go you!
I love the idea of a cotton shawl. You are so clever! What yarn did you use?
I like Maryse’s poem, too.
so funny! and pretty shawl too.
Heh, lovely poem and shawl to match!
The yarn is gorgeous! It’s a stunning accomplishment!
The shawl looks beautiful!
Your a genius! I love it. And I love that pattern – I have one too (although mine isn’t nearly as pretty)!
I mean’t “you’re” a genius – sorry
hee hee!! Great poem – and the shawl is amazing. The color is gorgeous!
*sniff* so moving…
I think that is absolutely hilarious! The shawl is beautiful 🙂
Damn, you’re good. That’s the best one I’ve read yet! (Oh yeah, the shawl is lovely, too.)
Very funny, and I agree that photos just don’t do justice to this beautiful shawl! I liked Maryse’s poem, too – maybe a knitter’s poetry collection is in order?
Love the shawl AND the poetry! GRIN…
Roses are red
Violets are blue
That lace shaw is sure pretty
And so are you
LOL! Very well done on the limmerick and the shawl! Who will be your next team mate?
A poet and don’t know it:)
Nice work on the shawl.
Damn you’re good! The shawl is great, too!
Heeheehee! I love your poem. And Happy Birthday, Dale! Now several days late – but the party just goes on and on.
I’ve seen that shawl in person, and it’s just as lovely as you are. And I love your poem.
Oooooooooooooo. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. (Lest that come off as really sarky in print, it’s not meant to be. I love your shawl. Love you, too.)
Beautiful! And what a great color for you!
I think you should submit that poem to a magazine…it’s really really good. Honest. 😉
I like your poem – I’m impressed by anyone who can write poetry (and have it actually make sense!). Poetry is not one of my talents.
You crack me up. Your Lotus Blossom shawl is SO pretty.
(Happy Birthday, Dale! Hope you appreciate that Carole…she’s obviously a woman of many talents!)
Har! That was a very good poem. I dig it.
Your shawl is awesome though! It’s really pretty.
Oh! And happy birthday to Dale and the sweet wee baby!
laughing so hard at your limmerick!!!
the shawl turned out lovely – such wonderful color and stitch pattern!
I love it..them… the shawl AND the poem! Damn you’re good!
tee hee hee!
Carole, what yarn did you use to knit your lotus blossom shawl? Isn’t it a fun knit? I knitted the same pattern for my amazing lace challenge and it knit up so fast! Anyway, I’m ready to knit another and would love to know what you used. Thanks!
Hehehe, poetry should be a regular feature here. With every FO. 🙂 Nice shawl!
