Cardigan, pullover, cardigan, pullover, which shall I choose?
It’s like music to our internal souls,
Rhythm we knitters dance and understand.
A repetition that motivates and gives us direction.
Patterns on the shelves, designers desiring our attention.
Each calling to be chosen for the next exciting project.
Cardigan, pullover, cardigan, pullover, you know how I want to choose you
Do I need a work horse, a hearty cardigan for my Spring look, I ask?
Knowing its versatility in zipper, button, or hook.
“I keep the breeze off your shoulders on cool summer evenings,” it sings
“In bulky weight I can be your jacket, coat, outer layer that can serve you as you need.”
Or, do I need a more casual look?
Cardigan, pullover, cardigan, pullover, it is time I make a choice,
Pullovers, pullovers, pullover; styles galore.
Round neck, v-neck, scoop, and boat
“No need to fuss with me. I come short, long, baggy, or lean.
And, many on Ravelry see me in stripe
I’m what you chose to take on a Friday night.”
Each has their advantage, a place in a wardrobe and in a knitter’s queue.
Each has their shortcomings, when the weather does not cooperate.
Cardigan, pullover it is always nice to have the option,
Look in your wardrobe to make that wise decision,
Cardigan, pullover, cardigan, pullover which shall I choose?
Cardigan, pullover, maybe I’ll knit one of each.
