Remember I wanted to make a new hat
With the yarn from old hats I’d unravelled?
Remember I said Random Rose made a hat,
A beret with ridges she cabled?
Well I followed the pattern that Rose kindly shared,
Though the yarn had lost elasticity.
The needles I used were not quite the right size,
But I wasn’t going to let that stop me.
So I finished my hat and I’m pleased how it went,
Cream and purple go well together.
I admit it turned out bigger than it was meant,
For my head is decidedly smaller.
As luck would have it, Miranda’s got a big head,
Though not the metaphorical kind.
So I decided to give it to her instead,
And I honestly really don’t mind.
