I Do Not Like Plain Stockinette

I do not like plain stockinette
I really don't and won't knit it

I've said it once, I've said it twice
Plain stockinette is just not nice

I would not like to knit it here
I would not knit it anywhere

I would not knit it for a goat
I would not knit it on a boat

You like to do it, this I see
But I will not, it's not for me

I would not like to knit a square
I would not knit one on a dare

I would not knit a simple box
I will not knit your plain old socks

I would not, could not knit a bag
It's such a bore, it's such a drag

I do not like plain stockinette!
I really don't and won't knit it!

"Try it! Try it!" so you say
"Try it and you may," you say

Fine. I'll try this felted bag
I can't believe you're such a nag

I cast on and then start to knit
Oh well, I guess I'll knit a bit

Wait, this bag is pretty neat
To finish will be quite a feat

This pattern just goes on and on
I've knit two balls of Kureyon

And half a skein of black Lamb's Pride
This stockinette is on my side!

'Round and 'round and 'round and 'round
And 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round

I love I love this stockinette!
I do love it! I will knit it!

Knit round and round all day and night
Until this bag is outta sight!


pattern: Felted Striped Tote from One Skein
yarn: black Lamb's Pride worsted, Noro Kureyon in Black/White colorway
needles: US 10.5 29" circular
