I have now been consistently knitting for about two weeks! I started off just knitting away with some white cotton yarn and by last Sunday had decided that I would bind off on that and find a washcloth pattern to use. I spent some time looking on the internet and was a bit discourage by the fact that I didn't know how to read patterns. Eventually I landed on the blog Homespun Living (which I have enjoyed reading in the past!) and found Deb's patterns to be easy to follow!
My knitting goal for August is to get 30 washcloths made. I'd like ten for bathtime and twenty for the kitchen. I think that I will need kitchen washcloths that are a bit bigger, so I may branch out and find a new pattern to learn from Homespun Living. Maybe the Waffle Knit Dishcloth? I'd really like to learn how to make the Baby Fern Stitch Dishcloth, but that might be pushing it for my skill level!
I am really looking forward to continuing to improve my knitting. I am hoping to make scarves out of the blue and green yarn for our two older children and then perhaps make a little vest for Button. It is nice to have the yarn shop nearby in case I get stuck!
What crafts are you learning now?
