I have tried knitting in the past. It was not a successful venture for me. However, big L wanted to learn, and I was determined to become a better knitter myself. So I began searching for easy patterns, and came across a contest to win a whole bunch of yarn, you just had to knit one of their patterns with their yarn. No problem.
Well, a month later I have a finished product it has holes, and I seem to have a habit of adding a stitch (and hole) and not dropping the stitch.
Here it is, my highly imperfect top for little l:
I need a lot of practice! I hope I win some more yarn. Big L wants something next. I told here mommy needed to start with something smaller, but that I would make her something soon....my poor fingers are not thanking me.
It was fun, and I do feel a sense of accomplishment. Hopefully on the next one I can spot my boo boos earlier enough to rip it out and fix, these I didn't see until I had a lot more done, and ripping stitches is something I am slowly becoming more comfortable with.
