It’s been exceedingly cold here over the past few nights.
We even had frosts which only happen occasionally.
This song has Musical Monday written all over the title
The Doors – Light My Fire 🙂
It’s surprising how different the words to a song – the tune – the melody – can sound when sung by various arists.
Take this one – I love you because…..
Writen by Leon Payne
Here is the original sung by Leon Payne
This is Jim Reeves version
And Al Martino’s
And here it is sung by the one and only Elvis Presley
Listen and see what you think – which do you prefer?
I’m not really sure where last week went to but it certainly passed by at a very fast rate of knots. Cold winter days mean I need to find lots of indoors pursuits to stop me from feeling miserable – and this past week of cold winter days was the perfect time to do the ‘finishing off’ on some children’s jumpers I wanted to donate.
You know, I always feel it’s those final things like sewing in sleeves, picking up stitches round the neckline for the neckband as well as choosing the ‘right sort of ‘ buttons that take time and need to be done when you are in the right frame of mind or the garments never have a ‘knit with love’ look.
I’m hoping the recipients of these boys knits enjoy the love packed in the parcel.
And look what I found on YouTube this week. Who would have guessed there would be songs about knitting lol. I actually found several but this one is fun all the way along each row 🙂
Do listen carefully as Bill Odie (yes, from The Goodies) sings about knitting the blues away in a very ‘Blues’ way
