a heap o' knitting

It takes a heap o' knitting*
to make a fine lace shawl,
But it's mostly knit and purling;
not too difficult at all.

And once it's blocked
and ready and it's settled
'round your arms,
You'll soon start to plan another
for you've fallen for it's charms.

*with apologies to Edgar A. Guest (1881-1959)
