I DID IT!!!

I did it!!! I've knitted something...I haven't knitted probably in a good 30 years. I actually remembered....I guess it's like riding a bike. The pattern is from a Carol Duvall show on knitting of all things. This lady did a purse and it was so easy I thought it would be a good beginner's project. I made a few boo-boos but I fixed them. I even lined the purse...I'm so happy with myself. By the way, I used Lion Brand Jiffy Thick and Quick yarn in Adirondack.



I originally learned to crochet at an early age. My mom taught me both crochet and knit but she was a crocheter. I thought crocheting was easier but back in the 60's, knitting was much prettier to me. So my parents bought me a "knit-0-matic" for my birthday (I was about 10). I loved that thing...when it worked. It was for young girls to learn how to knit. I guess if I googled it, someone probably has one for sale on ebay. Anyway, I never really did learn all the fine parts of knitting...but now I'm ready to attempt more....don't know what it will be next, and it will be worked on between my crochet projects, but you'll be the first to see the completed project.
So, that it's for tonight...short and sweet....till tomorrow.....10-4 good buddy!

holy cute!
I keep thinking i want to try and knit (my grandmother MADE me sit and knit with her when i was like 5...i made a long long scarf..EVERY TIME we went to visit, which THANK GOD was only a few times a year..LOL).

I think the only reason the urge to "try" knitting again is comming from PEER PREASURE. LOL. aot of crocheter's seems to take up knitting later on as well...

but i dont think i will. hehehehe.

I like it too, very pretty!!!
I printed out the pattern, I'm also looking for nice and easy knit patterns, this one's the perfect project to make with the yarns I got from swaps.

I like the bag! I want to learn to knit. It just I don't know if I want to do another yarn thing. I will probably be kicked out! LOL. Really cute way to go!

I forgot to note that I just used a Lion Brand Jiffy Thick and Quick in the color Adirondack. Worked fine!
