The 12 Days of Knitmas

Hi, everyone! :waving:

Well, the holidays are upon us (WHERE did the year go?) and I wanted to get an early start on the festivities, so I wrote this for all of us to have fun with. Enjoy!

The 12 Days of Knitmas
(Sung, of course, to the Twelve Days of Christmas!)

On the first day of Knitmas, my true love gave to me…

Some sock yarn in a pear tree;

2nd day - Two needles clicking …
3rd day -Three stitch row counters …
4th day -Four point protectors …

5th day - Five marker rings!

6th day - Six double pointeds …
7th day - Seven Yarn Shoppe coupons …
8th day - Eight hanks of mohair
9th day - Nine knitting patterns
10th day -10 wires for blocking
11th day - 11 “How to Knit” books
12th day - 12 maids for housework

Oooh, Ruthie … :rofl: :roflhard: :rofl: :roflhard:
Thanks for the laugh.

Very creative and funny, to boot! Nice job! :thumbsup: (And now I’ll be singing that for the rest of the day)

Hi! :waving:

Ever since I wrote this I’ve been humming it! It’s so nice to know there will be others in the chorus!!! :roflhard:

Have fun and sing LOUD! :slight_smile:


:roflhard: That is really clever! Thanks for sharing it with all of us!

That’s great!! I love it!!

You are so clever! That’s great!

I love it! Thanks for the laugh. I will pin it up on the wall at Uni and see what my housemates make of it!

Cute. Loved it.

Ahhh Great!!!

haha, that was cute. thanks :slight_smile:

Hi! :waving:

I have a suggestion for knitters’ Christmas wish list…

Print the song out and post it on your fridge. When anyone asks, just tell them you’re dreaming of a wonderful Knitmas! :roflhard:

You might even want to underline certain things in red (like the 12 maids for housework?) to emphasize them on your list!!!

Hope this helps everyone have an abundant Knitmas!


I love it! Thanks Ruthie!

Very Cute…love it. I will be singing in my head for the rest of the day.

That was great!!! Thank you for sharing.

Oh, so cute! I really enjoyed it. Thank you!

Very clever - I absolutely love it!
