If you’ve ever tried (or wanted) to teach a child to knit, I have a traditional rhyme for you, from “Knitting Daughter” by Perry Klass.
For knit stitch:
Under the fence, catch the sheep, back we come, off we leap.
I could be the last knitter in the world to learn this; sometimes I’m staring out the window when instructions are being given.
And here’s a rhyme for purling, but it lacks the insouciance of the leaping sheep.
