August Craft-A-Poem

Here's the 8" square for the August Craft-a-Poem. It is called Tangled Threads. The center resembles a spider web. It is written specifically for fingering weight yarn. 


TANGLED THREADS



The accompanying poem is written by Sir Walter Scott. Marmion, published in 1808, produced some of his most memorable lines. Canto VI , Stanza 17 reads:

Yet Clare's sharp questions must I shun
Must separate Constance from the nun
Oh! what a tangled web we weave
When first we practise to deceive!
A Palmer too! No wonder why
I felt rebuked beneath his eye

Thanks to Sara from Lazy Knits and Purls for hosting this contest. It's so much fun to find poetry to coincide with my squares every month.  Haven't I made good choices thus far - or would you have chosen something different? Feel free to comment. :)
