Our holiday in July’s on the Fourth.
Freedom — priceless its worth.
Let’s have fireworks and beer,
Parades far and near,
And picnics everywhere, from the south to the north.
We knitters and crocheters have other ways
To spend our holidays.
We stitch and create
Even staying up late
To work on our crafts and displays.
In July, we celebrate Independence.
To do so, we could crochet pendants
In red, white and blue
Or other colors too
And we’ll make plenty more projects hence.
*To those of you who are outside the USA, please feel free to re-color any of our Fourth of July projects into other colors — maybe your own country’s colors if you like, or whichever color combinations you prefer.
Also, I invite everyone else to join in the limerick-writing fun, if you like. I’m writing these from my own limited experience, and since I have lived in the USA for most of my life, those are the experiences I have to draw on. I really don’t mean to exclude anyone, and would be happy to see family-friendly limericks from crocheters around the world expressing other viewpoints. Bonus points if they’re silly, tongue-in-cheek, and knitting or crochet-related, but they do have to stay family-friendly!
