Here's my latest creation, another dishcloth. I really like this pattern, and it's so easy: knit 5, purl 5! I think I shall try the next one with smaller squares (knit 3, purl 3) and see what develops... keep your needles crossed for me.

This is where I will keep the details of my knitting projects and photos as well.
A little background for all who will read this, I started knitting about 2 months ago, after I lost my job. I wanted to learn something that would keep me busy and occupy both sides of my brain. One day, I saw a Learn to Knit kit that teaches how to knit cat toys at Target. It came with a video and everything you need to make a few cat toys. I have enjoyed knitting a lot so far, and I'm glad to have found a community of other men who are into it as well.
So far, I can only knit and purl in the English-style. I can do simple increases & decreases, although I'm having trouble making the "invisible" increase (mine are plainly visible). I have made all 3 of the cat toys the kit taught me (the fish, the mouse & the ball) and I started knitting dishrags.
