I'm Knitting!

Holy Cow!  Check this out!  Thanks to all those who encouraged me.  I know the picture isn't great (Wow! Didn't know my thighs looked that big, Ugh!). The colors are a little off.  I took it with Car Guy's iPod, but I had to show you the progress.  I'm still really awkward.  I'm having a hard time figuring out how to hold the yarn, but I'm getting there. Evidently, I make funny faces while I'm knitting

I'm afraid I'm being a little ambitious...which may be my downfall...but this is going to be a sweater. No scarf here.  No sirree! We are going to start out big....which means it may end up in a basket.  I hope not.  I'm meeting with a friend of a friend on Saturday and she's going to help me out. I'm so excited!

I'm off to try to get a few rows done before bed and I still have to get my bread in the oven. I'll be back soon with March's "Pay it Forward." I can't believe it's already March?!?!  Good Night!


  1. Good job on the knitting. I knit and crochet and it's good to have both skills. I must say I prefer crocheting though. Knit makes a very professional product, thought.

  2. love the wool! it looks great!!! Can't wait to watch it grow, you just keep on going!
    oh and your thighs don't look huge! :O)

  3. Yes Oreo sure had the right idea in your last post, although I had to look for a while to be able to see which end was what!!! Very cute with paw over face. Do love your knitting, you will soon be knitting without feeling awkward, hey if I can learn to crochet, you can learn to knit. I find knitting much easier than crochet only because I have knitted all my life.

  4. Great job on starting the knitting. I learned how to crochet first, so I hold my yarn the same way when knitting.
