My latest project

This is my latest knitting project. Don't look too closely or you'll see all the flaws. I am most definitely a novice knitter. I've been teaching myself with The Complete Idiot's Guide to Knitting and Crocheting and I can finally at least figure out a basic pattern. So far I've made several scarves (they make nice Christmas gifts), some cotton dish cloths, and now this blanket. It's going to be for my older daughter and she picked out the yarn. She loves purple. I wanted to finish it by Christmas, but I just don't think it's going to happen. I never seem to have time to do more than one or two rows before I have to put it up. At least it's portable and I can take it with me if I have to wait somewhere. I thought about taking it to the next PTA or church committee meeting. :)

Your project is pretty.

I knitted a blanket for a friend that had so many flaws in it that I was almost embarrassed to give it to her. But, I enjoyed doing it. There's something about knitting that's so soothing.

I'm sure she loved it! It's so special to receive a hand made gift.

You are doing a WONDERFUL job knitting!! I have tried to teach myself, but I am so used to only holding 1 needle while crocheting, that it is hard to train myself to hold two!!!

Keep up the great work!

Thank you Mrs. U! I don't think I'm ready to even attempt crochet. Once I get really good with knitting, maybe I will try it. I would love to be able to do both!
