Bibbidi, Bobbidi, Boo

Late last night, as I blocked my newly completed lace shawl, I had a little song running through my head, inspired by the magical way I was turning a gnarly mass of loopy wool into a delicate work of art. I know most of you either have children or were children, so you know this song. Sing with me.


Put ’em together and what
have you got

It’ll do magic believe it or not

Now sala-gadoola means
Menchicka booleroo
But the thing-a-ma-bob that
does the job
Is bibbidi-bobbidi-boo

Put ’em together and what
have you got

I am totally infatuated with this thing.

I keep draping it over anything that can be draped over.

This is the most beautiful thing I have ever made with my hands.

It was the most challenging knitting project I have ever undertaken.

Now, what am I going to do with it?

  1. Absolutely breathtaking! You did an awesome job!

    “Now, what am I going to do with it?”

    This is exactly why I have never knit a shawl. I’m not a shawl kind of girl. I have such a hard time thinking of knitting such a work of art only to store it away because i just won’t wear it.

    Knit lace? YES! Knit a lace shawl? I just can’t do it… though after seeing that, it is so appealing…

  2. Perfect song! I always feel like knitting is magic. And oh! The wonders of blocking, especially lace!

    It’s so beautiful!! Wear it around the house. Throw it over an armchair. 🙂

  3. Wow, Shelly! This IS impressive! What a beautiful piece of work! I think you OUGHT to be feeling pretty good about it!!!

  4. You did it, you did it, you did it did it did it!! {singing and dancing}

    Wear it whenever you feel a chill!! You will have it FOREVER and it is sure to be handy!
