Knitting needles clicking and crochet hook,
Yarn and thread become apparel, unique.
Warmth and love are blended in a new look,
Saying volumes more than words can speak.
From young girls crocheting neck scarves for their boyfriends
To mother-to-be knitting booties for her child.
The beautiful, creative work at no time ends;
Needlework produces love gifts undefiled.
Someday, they'll say, "Great Grandma made this."
There will be some who will, and some not, care,
But the piece of needlework will, across the years, kiss
The one who chooses it to use or wear.
