Tatting in My Pocket

Inspired by the poem on this page:
http://web.archive.org/web/20040806122900/http://www.hottub.org/~exapno/tatting/pocket.html
(which I discovered from this Craftpedia page: https://www.craftree.com/wiki/Literature+and+Poetry)

It was on e-tatters, and it grew for quite a while, with more and more people adding verses. Maybe we can add some more verses? The only rule is, the third line must include "tatting in my pocket".

The bus journey can be boring,
It's two hours every day,
But with tatting in my pocket,
I can while the miles away.

I'm sitting on my balcony
it rains, though not on me
But with tatting in my pocket
there's no place I'd rather be!

Climbing to a mountaintop
Or sailing on the sea,
With tatting in my pocket
Adventure comes to me!

Don't know anybody,
Anxious as I can be,
But with tatting in my pocket
Conversations come to me!

There's nothing on the radio.
There's nothing on TV.
But with tatting in my pocket.
I'm happy as can be!

I have to work tomorrow.
I should go to bed.
But the tatting in my pocket
Says make some lace instead.

I'm sitting at my computer
Fixing some mistakes..
The tatting in my pocket
Says, "You should take a break!"

My head is in a swirl
The threads are in a twirl
The tatting in my pocket
Is full of rings in a curl*

Chores are stressing
NEWS is depressing
Tatting in my pocket
Is very refreshing !

Non-crafters may think I'm daft
They might call me a loony
But with tatting in my pocket
I won't just stop at a Cluny !

'I'm going through a designers block'
One often hears this talk.
Use the tatting in your pocket
To unlock with a Block !

The hegemony of a Trefoil
I fully intend to spoil
Since the tatting in my pocket
Is creating shapes from a Quatrefoil !

My husband rrrrrolls his eyes hiding a smile

When I ask for more supplies

He Knows the tatting in my pocket
Will make lace for miles and miles !

What shall I make today?
A cross, bookmark or ring?
With tatting in my pocket,
I can make anything!

I really need a break
before I start to pout
With tatting in my pocket,
It's time to get it out!

It's still middle of the day,
And I want to run home from office,
coz with tatting in my pocket
I can't sit around my bosses! #StoryofMyLife
