Drum Roll...

Ladies and Gentlemen,
My first completed knitted project EVAH...
Tah-Dah!!!

I'm so completely giddy over this, you'd think I just finished painting the Mona Lisa.

And it has a heart...

A shabby little heart...
Lovingly sewn on with haphazard stitches...
(I only swore a little, but it was loving swearing.)

And it's PINK and everything!

I apologize if I seem a little immodest and braggy, but I tried HARD many times to learn how to knit, and I'm so happy I went all OCD persevered this time and it stuck. I could have knitted a dog turd and been overly-pleased with myself.

I take that back. I don't apologize at all.
LOOK WHAT I DID!

  2. Oh, bless your heart. I know how that sense of accomplishment goes. It is like, "Please, please, pat me on the back, look at what I did!" Good for you, I'm proud of you too for not giving up. Kinda humbles you and makes you feel like a kid again. That's a good thing though isn't it. Can't wait to see what you whip up next. Dish cloths are a relatively simple project and that knitting book you won from my giveaway has plenty of great pattern stitches, many simple. I have used some in my copy to make cotton dish cloths. Have fun, enjoy your weekend. Love your pink mug cozy with the little heart.

  12. Congratulations new knitter!! ^_^ Welcome to the world!...I only hope you find that you love it as much as your crocheting! Unfortunately for me, I know how to do both well..but I HATE knitting...with a passion!! LOL I only knit if it's for a project I can't do without, or if I need to finish off a crochet project or something. I've got all kinds of knitting paraphernalia....and if you know someone who wants to buy them, holla at a girl!! LOL

  14. Dorothy, yes, I knitted it on 9" circular needles with the shortest needles you've ever seen (like an inch and a half long or so). Should make working with longer ones a breeze!

  18. Congrats to you my friend! I just learned to knit by making socks. I'm on the toe of the second sock. I still am lost with reading knitting patterns but it will come one day.

  28. That is too COOL! I've been at it for 4 years now and I have trouble with in-the-round unless its circs (which I pretty much use exclusively because straights hurt my hands and dpn's are just too fidley, I'll never be a sock maker). and pink, I mean really now, how bad can anything be when its pink??? lovely!
