knitting rhymes

I came across these two old knitting rhymes about sock knitting...

To knit a stocking, needles four,
cast on three needles and no more,
each needle stitches eight and twenty,
then one for seam stitch will be plenty

I've not tried the instructions yet!

This one however is my favorite. I just think its wonderful.

“Life is a stocking”, Grandma says, “And yours has just begun. But I am knitting the toe of mine, And my work is almost done”.
This one almost makes me cry.

for now

The first one is cute, and the second one almost made me cry, too...
Thanks for sharing.
