A Spinner’s Wish List

Oh Dear Santa bring me toys
To fill me with such matchless joy.

A drumcarder would fit beneath my tree
Beside a Lendrum, if you please.

And lots of bobbins, heads and wool
Would make my Christmas stocking full.

I have no need for an arctic parka
Please bring a Bosworth charka.

I don’t want new underclothing
Just some combed merino roving.

Finally, a Christmas wish from spinners around the earth
May our new lambs, kids and crias have safe births.

May our yarns be plied with holiday cheer
And wheels stay true in this New Year.

  1. Merry Christmas, Bobbie! and ToolMan, too.

  2. May your batts be never neppy, may your sliver slide like silver and may all your plies be as even as you want them.

  3. cool poem! Hope you had a lovely Christmas.

  4. Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!
