3KCBWDAY5 - Something a bit different

This is an experimental blogging day to try and push your creativity in blogging to the same level that you perhaps push your creativity in the items you create.There are no rules of a topic to blog about but this post should look at a different way to present content on your blog.
 
 
 
Yarn, How do I Love Thee?
(with apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning)
 
 
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee as a laceweight
For gossamer stitches so ornate
My shawls admired always.
 
 
I love thee as a 4 ply too,
Perfect for stylish, cosy feet,
Without you my wardrobe would be incomplete,
Whether silk, merino or bamboo.
 
 
I love thee as a DK skein,
A variegated rainbow or subtle hue,
For cables, colourwork or stitches plain.
I love thee as an Aran wool,
Enveloped in softness, comfort too,
With love for you all my heart is full.
