Pins and Needles

TTTO “Ones and Zeroes”, Kathy Mar

The knitters have invaded, they’re everywhere you look
And every conversation is a knitting pattern book
They rant about the wool they bought, they talk of the “increase”
I want to find some way to say for me it is Chinese!

[Chorus]
Calm down, it’s only pins and needles,
Calm down, it’s only yarn and wool
Calm down, and speak to me in English
Please realize that when it comes to knitting, I’m a fool

They sit around for hours as I’m sure you’ve seen and heard,
But only other knitters understand a single word
With stitches, rows and colums, and of patterns they do brag
The lady that you’re talking to has needles in her bag!

[Chorus]

The knitter faction’s growing, the day may be at hand
When everyone must lurn to knit by government command!
I do not think I’ll mind it, I’ve not minded the reverse
‘Cause making wools from sweater is a thing that I rehearsed

[Chorus]

One day I’ll learn to knit, but I still doubt I’ll do it well
It won’t be that amazing and I don’t think it will sell
Though it might take a lifetime I intend to see it through
I want to be a part of this exclusive in-crowd too!

[Chorus]
Calm down, it’s only pins and needles,
Calm down, it’s only yarn and wool
Calm down, and speak to me in English
I understand that knitting is a hobby that must rule
I know that in this day and age, it’s now considered cool
Please realize that when it comes to knitting, I’m a fool
