Free verse from a (n almost) free knitter

In a car (as a passenger)

I cast off the last knit stitch

of a Really Big Project

knit on Really Small Needles

and now I am tending to

the ends of strings, weaving them

into the fabric they were left out of

until now.

When it is done I will send it away

along with the hours I lived and breathed it

and it will be my turn to be left out

forever after.

But I will have pictures!

:))) I especially love the line "and now I am tending to the ends of strings"!

... and a book with your name in it... and (I hope) some money...

You did a wonderful job! Thank you so much!
