I have mentioned before, I am new to knitting. But I find myself getting less frustrated and enjoying it more.
I FINALLY finished a scarf. I won't admit to how many attempts I have made to make a simple scarf. I also won't admit to how many mistakes I made while making the scarf, but I decided mistakes or not it was getting finished and that I was going to wear it. Goal complete!
I decided to try something else. I browsed online and decided to try washcloths. I found one that I liked at http://verypink.com/2011/06/14/learn-to-knit-a-dishcloth/ (very nice knitting website)
It was listed as a beginner project but after reading the pattern it did NOT look like a beginner project to me. Yarn Over? K2? What the heck did that mean?
But thankfully along with the pattern there was a video tutorial. I watched and thought maybe this is possible.
I started one last night and finished it the same night. I used it today! I like projects like that.
By no means is it perfect. There are mistakes but I was satisfied with the end results. I really enjoyed the project, so much that I went to the store and bought some more cotton yarn to make more.
|My first official yarn stash....|
I have wanted to knit for years. I finally feel like I am making sense of it and there is hope for me yet.
With some luck I may be able to move up to advance beginner, someday.
I decided to post a picture of the two projects I finished this week. I was a little skeptical due to the fact that any knitter will be able to see all of my mistakes. But then I thought of all of the knitters I have met and came to the conclusion that they would probably be happy to celebrate my small success with me. I also decided if I keep the picture small enough my mistakes might not be as noticable.
Off to knit some more washcloths!
