• How This Works

      Short Version

        1) Every Sunday a new crochet Prompt or Challenge will be posted. In addition, a Mission will be posted on the first day of each month, and possibly within any given month.
        2) Copy the Prompt/Challenge/Mission to your own blog with your response then come back here and leave your link in the comments of the appropriate topic so everyone will know where to find it.
        3) If you don't have a blog, why not start one? Or you can just post your response here.
        4) You don't have to participate in every post. Do the ones you want. Backtrack if you wish. 5) If you have any comments about this site and/or suggestions for a prompt/challenge, click on the "Share Your Ideas" tab and use the form to send it.

        For the long-winded version, click the About button.

Limerick Your Crochet

Even if you don’t consider yourself a poet, this should be fun and easy. Your mission is to write a limerick–or several–about crochet. No starting with “There once was a man from Nantucket…” though!

What is a limerick? A limerick is a short poem, oftentimes humorous (although it doesn’t have to be), which consist of five lines. Lines 1, 2, and 5 should all three rhyme with each other, as should lines 3 & 4, thus creating a rhyme-scheme of aabba.

Need more info to get you started? Do a Google search on “example of limericks” or check out this site: How to Write a Limerick.

Have fun!

Just a note: Don’t forget to copy this prompt to your blog and respond to it. Then come back here and post a quick comment telling us where we can find your actual post.

  1. This was a lot of fun! I have a few silly little ditties posted in this blog entry.

    (Tracie, I know you said, “No Nantucket!” but I couldn’t resist. I kept it clean for the kids and those like myself who could do without a disturbing vision of doilies.)

    and I apologize in advance

  9. I’m not much of a blogger, nor, I guess, much of a poet either. However, I just couldn’t resist the chance to be supportive and take the Stitch-Stirrer challenge.
