DIY: Knits

FINALLY I am posting some homemade knits. I feel like I've been talking about knitting forever without any result!  I started knitting in August while my grandpa was in the hospital.  It has now become one of my favorite past times.  For Christmas gifts I got really ambitious and made 15 dishcloths for the girls in my family.  It was a great way to learn and try out new stitches.  After making 15 I doubt I'll ever make another dishcloth again but it was fun while I made them.


I also knitted my good friend Abby, over at the Turquoise Penguin a wool/acrylic blend scarf with a large cable stitch.  Cabling is so much fun to do once you get the hang of it. I made a 100% wool one for myself for practice.  I like Abby's so much better because its much lighter and drapes a lot nicer.  I make another for myself, we will see!



My next big projects are baby booties, baby blankets, and possibly an afghan for myself.  Keep checking in!
