And now for something completely different!

This got written for the KR retreat in November -- and I blame it all on A*n*y*i*; who denies responsibility....but it's her fault anyway...

Ghost Knitters in the Sky

Some fiber folk went out to KIP one bright and sunny day
Upon a bench they rested nearby a public way
When all at once there gathered there in just a little bit
A crowd of wondering people to watch these people knit!

Yippie yi Ohhhhh Yippie yi yaaaaay
Ghost Knitters the sky

The needles were on fire and the yarn it shone like steel
As yard by yard of knitting began to fast unreel
A bolt of fear ran through the crowd as the row it neared the end
But knitters reversed the needles, and the rows began again!

Yippie yi Ohhhhh Yippie yi yaaaaay
Ghost Knitters the sky

Their faces gaunt, their eyes a-blur, their shirts are soaked with sweat
They're knitting hard to finish soon, but they ain't finished yet
'Cause they've got to knit forever on that bench out by the road
With their navoho plied bison yarn that they hand dyed with woad

Yippie yi Ohhhhh Yippie yi yaaaaay
Ghost Knitters the sky
