My sister has the best of news,
She says she feels the baby move,
A dozen patterns in my mind,
the softest yarn I have to find,
but first I have the Christmas knits,
to finish and to hope they fit,
a funny thing to knit a gift,
the knitter's spirit seems to lift,
with every row and SSK,
imagining the give away,
who gets more joy when knitters knit?
I'm off to knit and sit.
