MITTEN ACCOMPLISHED!!!

I DID IT!
I actually finished a knitting project that involved more than just a straight line!
Took a class last week, (see previous post) and had to go back to the shop twice for a knitting intervention, but finally finished my project. I felted them last evening and set them on the front porch to dry overnight. I am thrilled to have learned something new. Keeps my mind active and thinking. So many new things to try, so little time.
I am setting my hand to another pair this evening, as once I learn something new, I want to do it again as soon as possible, so as not to lose the groove. Don't think I will felt the new pair, though I love the fact that I can make some really major mistakes and felting covers them up!
Pin It!

i am assuming that felting is something you do after you are finished knitting? Can you give me the low down?

They look great! Good for you! Like most things, learning to knit just happens one step at a time. Pretty soon it won't look like Greek, but will actually make sense :o)

What yarn did you use? It's pretty!

Well done!
Are you looking forward to some cold weather now?!!

Good job! That is quite an accomplishment, something to pass on for the next generation to learn too. I never learned to knit, but I do crochet...only dishcloths though. What is "felt"?

Awesome mittens!!!

I've done a wee bit of knitting, but not much. My greatest feet in knitting is 3 hats I knit and felted. I used hand spun wool for them, some I'd spun when first learning this craft. I do plan to learn to knit so I can use up more of the yarns I spin, but never seem to have time to learn... lol. I had thought I'd use the yarns for weaving, and have done so with some of them and will with more eventually, but I have been weaving some things that are better done without wool.

Keep up the good knitting. I must admit I've forgotten how I knit the hats a few years ago, lol.
