Today I am linking up with Terri at Hearts in Service. This semester Abbie has been learning knitting for Home-Ec. Not knowing how to knit myself, I purchased an instruction DVD to use so the two of us could learn together.
This post is definitely not about perfection, but it is about the joy and satisfaction in learning a new skill. Knitting always seemed kind of intimidating to me having the two needles, but I am enjoying it so much.
I started with this scarf using just the knit stitch as my first project, and just finished it up this week.
Then I wanted to work on a dishcloth/washcloth. I really like this pattern, but my beginning and ending corners leave a little to be desired. Hopefully, they will get better with practice. And then I found an area with extra loops on the backside after I had bound off. Fortunately, they don’t show much and I’m sure I will forget about them as I’m washing dishes! 😉
Thanks, Terri, for the link-up, and for the encouragement to be productive!
Weekend blessings, friends!
