Hi!

I want to make a CD of songs about yarn, crochet, and knitting for my friend who's very much into yarn. I'm not sure there are such things, but I'm thinking there must be a few. Perhaps some in other languages.

Does anyone have any leads?

Thanks! :)

How about this little ditty?

Muppets Doozer Knitting Song

It's neat and it's sweet
It's a ding dong treat
Knittin' socks for little feet
Just sittin' with your knittin' all day long
You know knittin's friendly
And knittin's fun
Knittin's good for everyone
And that is why we sing this knittin' song
Well it's knit one pearl two
What's a Doozer gonna do
With a gol-darn
Ball of yarn?
It's stitch three drop four
Pitch that knittin' out the door right now
There's a green there's a red
There's a knot in my thread
A knitter needs his noggin read
So don't come 'round and speak to me of yarn
You can k-nit all day and k-nothin' fits
'Cause only k-nitwits like to k-nit
And k-nittin' k-needles just ain't worth a darn
Well it's knit one pearl two
What's a Doozer gonna do
With a gol-darn
Ball of yarn?
It's stitch three drop four
Pitch that knittin' out the door right now

:teehee:
