Channeling Bing

To entertain myself while shoveling out from the overnight snowstorm, I took liberty with a classic holiday song. I apologize in advance if I offend anyone…

Oh, the weather outside is frightful!

Winter snowstorm

But my knitting is so delightful!

Since I’ve nowhere to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!


I’ve got lots of projects for knitting,

projects for knitting

And a comfy couch just for sitting.

comfy couch

Because I’ve nowhere to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

When I finally get up out of my chair, how I’ll hate how my knees they will ache.

But I’ll have handmade gifts to share; let’s hope that I don’t make a mistake!

All day long my needles will be clicking, and delicious chai I’ll be sipping.

Chai and knitting

I’m so glad there’s nowhere to go. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Outside the snow keeps falling, while my knitting inside keeps calling.

I think there may be enough snow for today. Could the clouds just please go away!

Wishing you all knot-less yarn and warm woolies!

  1. What a wonderful blog post! Thank you for sharing your snow with us here in Texas! The snow looks so beautiful, and I would totally want to be knitting and watching it from my window. Looks like you were having fun shoveling for a little while and lets hope that you are back inside and warm by the fireplace with your knitting and your chai right now! Happy Knitting and Happy Holidays too!

  2. What a knitterly response. I love it. We do not have any snow yet thanks to El Niño. It has been fray and blah and silly warm here in Rochester. NY.

  3. Gosh I loved your song so much Ann, I also got to see you on Stacy Dawson’s videocast which was also so fun! Thank you these greetings and happy holidays to you and yours.

  4. Love your song. Thanks for the chuckle. We are expecting snow tonight, so maybe tomorrow I will able to sing along!

  5. You are such a darlin’
    I am so jealous of your winter wonderland.

    Enjoyed the interview with Stacey and you. The blog post delightful along with pictures makes your version come alive. Happy Christmas Season to you and your family.

    Love this post, so creative. Thank you for sharing your snow with us here in Michigan! What, Michigan?? Yes, we have no snow on the ground and I am in the land of normally disturbingly large quantities of lake effect snow. We are supposed to get some starting tomorrow, but I don’t think it will be long lived. My poor grandson is coming for Christmas from Florida and has been excited to be able to play in the snow! Poor boy. It’s one present Grandma cant’ guarantee.

  9. I love your song. What a great way to use your shoveling time. Boy that looks like a lot of snow but it is pretty. We still have green grass here in WI and have been getting rain. Snow or rain it’s always a good time for knitting. Enjoyed your podcast. Hope you will make more.

  11. I thought your song was clever :-). I often say I don’t want it to snow if I have somewhere to go. So your song is perfect there is nothing I would rather do then sit and knit on my comfy warm couch.
