Knitting

I decided to give knitting another try. Once long ago in 3rd grade I made an orange square in 4h.
Then we moved and I did not rejoin 4h in our new town. I tried again briefly in collage, where the kind lady who sat at the visitors desk of the dormatory was helping me try to do some slippers. College was too busy, and the Lady became ill and decided not to sit for us anymore.

I am hoping to finish something this time around and since I am teaching myself no excuses for not getting it done. Iam starting with a simple scarf 18 stitches wide on size 11 needles. Knit a row Purl a row. I have about 4 feet of this so far.

I am having trouble with the tension at the beginning and end. The loops are various sizes. but overall it does not look bad.

Next I want to either do an illusion scarf or the Irish Hiking scarf from Helloyarn.com

I tought myself to crochet and I will teach myself to knit.

good luck with knitting! i can only do the basic knit and purl stitch. however, i have done a ton of scarves with just the knit stitch and i luv it for the whole relaxation factor.

can't wait to see your first completed project.

Hey bunny, thanks for stopping by my blog!

I submitted the eyeball pattern to Annie Modesitt for the 2007 crochet calendar. However, I will be needing pattern testers for other stuff going forward. Stay tuned.

Keep on knitting...it's not difficult.
