A Knitting Drill

Posted by

“Put the needle in,

Place the cotton round,

Bring this cotton through,

Slip the old stitch off.

Put in,

Place round,

Bring through,

Slip off.

In,

Round,

Through,

Off.”

– Henrietta Warleigh

If you’re a little bit of a musician and a little bit of a knitter, you may be familiar with this 19th century musical drill 🙂 or not. Anyway, it’s the lyrics for The Warleigh Musical Drill I thought I’d share, just because I’ve been doing both musical and knitting drills…

What do you think it’s going to be?

I’m calling the project a Rainbow, which it obviously isn’t, colorway-wise, but, as I work, the colorful yarn and needles bring up images of beautiful rainbows, which I love, kind of like these ones:

– double the fun!

Oh, and that pale blue little thingie on that rainbow needle is a straw stitch marker I never knit without anymore 🙂

Cheers!
