So I have been trying to learn to knit for quite some time. I really believe in the home arts and want to learn them. I can make plain knitted scarves but never really tried anything with a pattern.
Well earlier this winter I decided to push myself a bit. I asked for help on learning how to increase and decrease and bought a fabulous book from Barnes & Noble.
After many trials and errors, stops and starts, and ripped out stitches, I've done it! Tonight I finished my first "non-scarf" knitted item and it has a pattern!
It may only be a dish cloth but I am so very proud if it!
