I've been given the privilege of being Designer for the Day (DFAD) on GypsyDancers freeform frolic over at Ravelry and here's what I've come up with. This is for both.
Whilst trying to remember the rhyme that I'd sang in school many moons ago, I asked my twitter buds how it went. There were a couple of variations, One was to catch a tiger and the other an Indian. I remember the rhyme below as the one I sang in school.
I was also asked the question: what happens if the baby doesn't scream? well...I wouldn't drop the baby then would I! LOL
Week 13 DFAD instruction - July 18th 2010
My theme is picking, what to chose, I know I struggle with picking. So here’s a rhyme to help.
Iney, meany, miney, mo, catch a baby by its toe, if it screams, let it go, iney meany miney mo.
Now go gather your loose balls of yarn and line them up in a neat little line and say the rhyme pointing at each yarn as you say each syllable. Mo is the yarn your working with.
Do the same with all your needles.
The amount of words in the rhyme.
times the number in small by 7 for the month of July.
We’ve had some great instructions over the weeks. Lets use the rhyme to chose one. Maybe gather up all the ones you haven’t done, the ones that have worried you. Now say the rhyme with those and the one that lands on Mo is the one your doing.
If you'd like to do this instruction, just gather up all your fav patterns and say the rhyme to pick one.
