A Rockstar Arrives at WEBS

Posted on 1, May 2008 by


I’m not through with knitting Clapotis
Or yarn clubs I’ll never get in
It’s like the toe of the sock
That I’m never gonna graft
This life has turned out like the way I want it to be
(Tell me what you want)
Arriving at WEBS earlypaddingMy new friend
I’d like a fixed up house in a ‘Ronto hood
And a bathroom I can bathe myself in
A king size tub big enough for the cat plus me
(Yeah, so what you need?)
Checking out the cones and KaunipaddingKangaroo Dyer goodies
I’ll have a wonder publisher that’s ever so patient
And a number of editors on standby near
Gonna Kinnear a star from just a couple of feet
(Been there, done that)
The Yarn Harlot at the CalvinpaddingThe line waiting in WEBSpaddingMy Ravelry Bag and Posy SackpaddingThe crowd at the Calvin
I want a big project bag full of cool colorways
My own marquee on the Calvin Theater
Sitting between Kathy and Steve Elkin is perfect for me
(So how you gonna do it?)
Stephanie being introduced
I’m gonna trade this life
For fortune and fame
I’d even curl my hair
And change my name…

Cuz we all just wanna be with The Harlot
Speak in numerous theaters and halls
The yarns come easy and the groupies come to see
We’ll all stay skinny cuz we won’t eat meat.

And we’ll hang out in The Coolest Store
In the VIP with designer stars
Every first sock knitter’s gonna wind up there
And a stalking bunny with her dark black hair.

I want to enter like Elvis with all the panties
Hire a tall body guard that keeps out groupies
Sign a bunch of autographs so I can eat my meals in peace.
Meeting of MA, CT, RI, and CTpaddingSome Clapotis spotted!paddingPart of the NH ContingentpaddingEating dinner with the CT Contigent

I’m gonna dress myself with comfy fashion
Get a front door key to the Lettuce Knit mansion
Gonna marry a man that loves to brag about my books for me

I’m gonna trade this life
For fortune and fame
I’d even curl my hair
And change my name…

Cuz we all just wanna be with The Harlot
Visit numerous cities and towns
The yarns come easy and the groupies come to see
We’ll all stay skinny cuz we won’t eat meat.

Everybunny’s got a sock yarnie on speed dial
Well, hey hey I love to see my Rockstar
Hey hey I love to see my Rockstar.

I’m gonna knit those socks
that bug the major toe-uppers
Gonna use my needles
made of cold steel metal
Get internet readers commenting up my blog
Review my speech every night so I don’t ever get it wrong

I’m gonna trade this life
For fortune and fame
I’d even curl my hair
And change my name…
