South End SNOOD

There once was a girl who was learning
to make that for which she was yearning.
not to expect from Hubby,
nor gifts 'neath the tree,
nor pay more than she was currently earning.

She fancied a SNOOD she'd seen pictured
at Burberry's fall runway show (fashionister),
"I can knit THAT," she said,
constructing in her head
a design to stay $325.00 richer!






Now mavens galore took the bait,
and on back-ordered lists must now wait,
she started knitting at four,
and was soon out the door,
making swanky South End party by eight.
