I accomplished another one of my goals from my list of 40 things to do before I turn 20! If you have not seen the list yet or want to see what else I have left to do, just click on the link and check it out.
I have been a crocheter for about 10 years now and have always wanted to learn how to knit. I went to one knitting class last winter and ended up frustrated and crocheting by the end of the lesson. Although it was challenging to learn, I finally got my knitting needles together and sat there until I figured it out. I began by trying to knit a pair of socks...which I failed at. Then, I figured i would start with an easier pattern. So, I began creating a square. I called it a dish cloth, but we have just been calling it my versatile, knitted square. I use it to wash the counters. I know I am no knitting genius, but I can no honestly say I know how to knit and pearl, and I have officially finished a knitting project.
Now all I need to do is learn how to make a Christmas stocking!
