albadger: (KNITTING!)
[personal profile] albadger
I'm still new to knitting, but I already know that "potholder" is to knitting what "ashtray" is to ceramics: you may have started with other plans but this is what you ended up with. Nonetheless, here it is, my first project that looks even faintly like what it's supposed to! Gifted to the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] progbear, but I forgot to tell him that it's a ceremonial potholder only, and should never be used to hold pots, since it's acrylic wool and it might, ya know, melt.

That's pretty fancy for a first project!! KUDOS. Now you must move on to dish cloths. They are really very useful and fun to do and a place where there are never any errors, only design choices.

You are my inspiration! I'm actually working on my first dishcloth right now, which is teaching me yarn-over and knit-2-together -- trying to have each project add 1 or 2 skill elements. Maybe someday... a bear!

Next up: socks that don't quite match.

Acutally that is a goal -- knitting in the round! The not matching part is less a goal than an acknowledgement of reality, of course. :)
