“Put the needle in,
Place the cotton round,
Bring this cotton through,
Slip the old stitch 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 🙂
