Hooked on Knitting

After watching several of my friends knit I thought I would give it a try.  At one of our girls day out Gerry surprised me with a starter kit and DL was kind of enough to sit with me and give me some tips. 
I am no way at the level of knitting as these girls but I am enjoying making dish cloths. Will share a few pics of the ones I have made.

And one more for the season.
Another one of the grils shared  her Neck Warmer Parrellagram pattern with me.  It  is a good one for a beginner.  This can be worn several different ways.

I have not given up on sewing.  Just a few of the things I have made.  Cannot show everything because some are Christmas  gifts and I don't want to reveal them  just yet.

Four placematts.

A small snowman wall hanging using from my stash to finish.  I did hand embodery this one. 

Two more placemats. This time machine embrodery.

This is all for now.


  1. Betty, you are an amazing knitter! Your dish cloths are so very pretty. The raised designs show up so nice--because your knitting is so very even. It is wonderful to have you hooked!

  2. Knittin' Gal gone WILD ! ! ! ! !

  3. The machine snowmen are nice, but I really love the hand pattern.

  4. Great job on the washcloths!!!!!!
    Enjoy yet another great hobby.

  5. I am so impressed and can only imagine what you'll be knitting up as your yarn stash grows!
