Mad Lib - Love Story Remix (yarn)

I went to Mad Libs Online and decided to create a Mad Lib (Romance category) with all nouns, verbs, and adjectives that were yarn/knitting related.  Here's what the completed story ended up being.  Unfortunately, the Mad Lib messes up at the end because they asked for a different part of speech than they used.. but it's STILL fun!  :) 

We were both young when I first saw you. 
I close my eyes and the flashback starts: 
I'm standing there on a yarn swift in summer air. 

See the skein, see the party, the ball gowns. 
See you make your way through the crowd 
and say hello; 

Little did I know 
That you were Malabrigo; you were throwing knitting needles, 
And my daddy said, 'Stay away from Juliet.' 
And I was crying on the ball winder, 
begging you, 'Please, don't go.'' 

And I said, 
'Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone. 
I'll be waiting; all there's left to do is run. 
You'll be the swatch and I'll be the gauge 
It's a love story - baby just say 'Yes.'' 

So I sneak out to the yarn shop to see you. 
We keep quiet 'cause we're dead if they knew. 
So close your eyes; escape this dropped stitch for a little while. 
'Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter, 
And my daddy said 'Stay away from Juliet,' 
But you were everything to me; I was stitching you, 'Please, don't go,'' 

And I said, 
Niebling, take me somewhere we can be alone. 
I'll be waiting; all there's left to do is tink. 
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess 
It's a love story - baby just say 'Yes.' 

Romeo save me - they're tryin' to tell me how to feel; 
This love is wooly, but it's so real. 
Don't be afraid; we'll make it out of this sweater. 
It's a love story - baby just say 'Yes.'' 


I got tired of knitting, 
Wondering if you were ever comin' around. 
My faith in you was fading 
When I met you on the outskirts of town, 

And I said, 
'Romeo save me - I've been feeling so alone. 
I keep waiting for you but you never come. 
Is this in my scarf? I don't know what to think-' 

He knelt to the ground and pulled out a sock and said, 
'Marry me, EZ - you'll never have to be alone. 
I seamless you and that's all I really know. 
I talked to your dad - go pick out a white shawl; 
It's a love story - baby just say 'Yes.'' 

Oh, oh. 

We were both lacey when I first saw you...
