We Don't Need No Stinkin' Valentines!
Dirty Little Secret

Lead Me To Your Door

My sister claims that there is an appropriate Beatles song for every mood or circumstance.  I think she may be right . . .

 

As I slogged through the knitting of my Tinder cardigan, this Beatles tune played over and over in my head. 

Beginning way back in late September. 

the wild and windy night that the rain washed away

High in the mountains of Utah.

has left a pool of tears crying for the day

And all the way back to Michigan. 

why leave me standing here, let me know the way

Taking a break for the holidays.

many times I've been alone, and many times I've cried

And then, right at the end, struggles with the buttonband.

anyway you'll never know the many ways I've tried

And finally. . .

and still they lead me back to the long and winding road

you left me standing here a long, long time ago

don't leave me standing here, lead me to your door

A long and winding road, for sure.  But totally worth the trip!

Beautifully styled, Kym! I bought the Bedford pattern a few months ago, but didn't start it because I like Tinder so much more for its versatility. I think I have just enough Grignasco Loden for this... yay!

Fabulous! Looks so pretty with that scarf. I've knit the back and I'm a third done with a sleeve. It's a lot to knit, but the pattern was very well designed and written, which makes a world of difference.
