Completed Knitting Projects

Now that I’m full-steam into knitting again, I’ve managed to complete two projects.

My scarf (just plain knitting – something to warm up my skills again):

This was the first time I’ve ever added fringe – it was fun and very easy to do.   You just take a crochet hook and pull the yarn through some of the knitted loops.  Too cool!

And…a dishcloth:

The dishcloth was my first attempt at trying the purl stitch, and now I’m hooked. It’s amazing how such a simple stitch can create such different effects with yarn.

Oh – and before you scoff – knitting dishcloths is apparently a big thing. I was at the craft store today and saw several books and pamphlets containing nothing but dish cloth patterns. Who knew?!?

So…now that knitting has piqued my interest again, I picked up a few pattern books and am going to try a few more projects. Next I’m going to try a felted tote bag. I can’t wait to play…

I figure knitting is the perfect craft to do while I’m commuting back and forth to work at my new job. No…I still don’t have a start date – but here’s hoping it’s soon…
