Stand by your Knerd

Pardon me I didn't knit that for you - a kraftilicious country song by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne from Mason-Dixon-Knitting, which plays an ironic twist on the country classic Stand by your Man.

Lyrics

I've been hiding my yarn in the closet.
Oh, I wish I had fastened the door.
You have found the big sweater I started,
and you're asking me: “Who is it for?”

Pardon me, I didn't knit that for you.
I have knitted for somebody new.
It's a truth kept inside, I can no longer hide.
Pardon me, I didn't knit that for you.

Are you asking yourself why I did it?
How I came to do something so cheap?
It's a crime of the heart I committed.
I was knitting while you were asleep.

Pardon me, I didn't knit that for you.
All your fears about me are true.
If you knit for a friend, does that make it a sin?
Pardon me, I didn't knit it for you.

Darling, you have to understand that I didn't knit that for you. Elisabeth Zimmermann once said to knit on through all crises, and that's exactly what I'm doing. When a lonesome stranger asked me if that was hand-spun I was knitting, well - no man had ever talked to me like that before. Maybe I just need a new project.

Pardon me, I didn't knit that for you.
I was swatching it first, but it grew.
Row by row, stitch by stitch,
I was scratching an itch.
Pardon me, I didn't knit that for you.
