Do you love a knitter? Some advice on how to stay friends.
Beware a woman who knits
even though she may love you to bits
she'll knit you strange hats
which look better on cats
in weird stripes that may just bring on fits.
And her jumpers are twenty times worse
it's as if she is under a curse
though she tries to be kind
she's been struck colour blind
and you wouldn't wear her gifts in a hearse.
So if you want things to stay cool
take my advice and don't be a fool.
Don't be mean and convey
you wish she'd go away.
Just say you're allergic to wool.
