My First

I Finally finished my first knitted item, a dishcloth. I started teaching myself back in May. I got halfway through a scarf, decided it was the most horrible thing I had ever seen and put it up.

I went back to my crochet and finished a bunch of other projects.
I decided about a week ago that I had to start back up again with the knitting and got a pattern book for dishcloths. It only took 3 attempts to get this finished. The second is coming along much better.

Looks good...............keep up the dishcloths.............I always have several in reserve to use as hostess gifts and they are usually quite well received.

Knit on............

Great, looks like a really good first project with even knitting. I'm sure people would like to know what yarn you used. Keep going.

Great start! Your dishcloth looks quite impressive for a first project. Welcome to MWK, I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Great colour and pattern combination! Can you share the name of the book with the dishcloth patterns, please?

The Pattern book is Nifty Knit Dishcloths (yes, very original) by Leisure Arts.

The yarn is TLC Cotton Plus.
