She Likes To Knit Her Noodles

Her chopsticks are at the ready. Her hands are good and steady. She likes to knit her noodles! The task has just begun... She starts off with a mango Welt With pride, with zest, with tang. It's a mesmerising watch While the wiggling noodles hang. Next. She's on to saucy Stocking Stitch. Her garment sure does grow! Knit one - Purl one - Knit two together On each tasty row. And this main course is called " Knit Purl Chopstick Cha " With a curry Cabled centre, With sides of paprika Purl and Knit korma. And as an extra taste-bud treat BBQ Rib Raglan is on the menu. Trust me! This kind of cuisine Can't be found in any old venue! From there on, the sleeves do drop Like the soy sauce shaken a top. Neatly Knitted are the Ribs. Who voted for fish and chips? To finish this fine course... Knit - Slip - Knit - Pass Slip Stitch over. This will make the button holes For the Cadbury chocolate to melt all over. And on completion, these knitted noodles Slide straight on down her throat... Before we've had a chance to prove her skill This talent to others gloat!

This is very nicely done; I am not sure I can do it, but I might give it a go, for it is deliciously different and I do thrive with different!

wow, what a clever example for your contest. So it has to be ONE normal activity from a person's day using the food metaphor? HOpe I got that right.

Yes you got it... But I'm not fussy. If you can't think of food metaphor then bring food into your poetry somehow. But it must feature throughout your poem. Thank you :-D

Thanks Emilia. My nan tried to show me how to knit but I ended up with more holes each time so I decided it wasn't for me. She told me a few of the terms hence the knit knowledge in the poem .. lol :D

Natasha, this was a fun write! I could easily see her knitting away with 2 chopsticks and noodles! Blessings, Kim M

It was fun to write. Lol . My nan has started knitting a jumper and I know nothing about knitting so I asked her for some technical terms. Added a little food imagery and we had a good laugh. Lol. Thanks Kim.
