Helpful Rhymes

A little ditty for teaching kids (or adults) to knit:
In through the front door,
Once around the back,
Peek through the window,
And off jumps Jack.

And another one for the knit stitch:
Under the fence,
Catch the sheep,
Back we come,
Off we leap.

Let's not forget purling:
In front of the fence,
Catch the goat,
back we go,
jump off the boat.

And casting off:
Knit yourself over,
Invite your friend, too,
Leap frog over,
Lie down, Sue.

I like your poems but I have one you can add to it. This was in Stitch and Bitch book.

Go in your front door
And grab your scarf
Then take it outside
Before the cat barfs. :)

I have to remember these for when I teach Tori how to knit.
