Why I Should Stick To Scarves

Posted by MANDI at 12:50 PM
My knitting skills are coming along. I'd say they're coming along slowly rather than nicely but they are coming along. I can cast on without thinking too much about it, I've got knit and perl down and I'm very proud of my casting off. But the counting stitches kind of sucks and attempting to create anything more interesting than a row on plain knit or plain perl is generally less than successful. I've made several scarves - a couple for Offspring #2 who loves them, one for me and I'm onto my second one for #1, he chose bright red this time round.

I did finish the dress I'd started for #2's teddy. It was miles too big for Teddy so one of her babies is wearing it instead. I especially like how the bobbles on the straps of the dress look more like nipples - charming. Not!

And I think that it illustrates perfectly why I should indeed stick to scarves. Or maybe I should teach myself to crochet instead.

I think you did a great job! I can't knit anything but scarves myself. I am happy to help with the crocheting :)

I think you did a great job and you I watched you sew the dress up. That in itself is an achievement. You are also good at knit and PURL. Just keep practising and when you learn to crotchet you can teach me.
