Knitting, pregnancy, and other stuff

Thursday, June 15, 2006


Aija posted a link to this very fun contest over at her site. I don't really need to win a beer right now, but man oh man do I love writing stupid haiku. We used to amuse ourselves for hours writing haiku in high school. Here are the ones I posted on the Beer Haiku Daily site:

My brother homebrews.
This fall, my child will be born.
Y'all save some for me.

I used to drink wine
while knitting bibulously.
Beer won't stain my yarn.

Actually, two of my brothers-in-law do in fact homebrew, and clearly, I must send them to this site. One of them actually investigated brewing non-alcoholic homebrew because he's just that nice to me.

And some non-beer ones:

Spindling last evening
was so deeply involving
no knitting got done.

To be good at one
must I give up the other?
Too many hobbies.

I lied. I did knit.
Embossed Leaves needed ribbing.
(Took less than an hour.)

I took no pictures.
Another ball of singles-
looks like yesterday's.

Yay! :) I have fun writing these too, even though I really don't want to win a beer either.
