Dishcloth Day One


A very cloudy day here today so it's a bit hard to knit.  Yes, knit!

I have recently joined Ravelry, a great knitting/crocheting website.  You can do all sorts of things on it like create an inventory of all your stash (needles, yarn, etc.), get patterns, join discussion groups and document your projects.  So, there is a place to add 'notes' to a project but I'm not really sure if that is where you discuss your project(s).  That is why I'm writing my update here (as I think there might be a link between your personal blog an Ravelry).  Perhaps you'll be able to view it on Ravelry as well as here.  Still learning all this stuff!

So, it's the first day of my knitted dishcloth.  I'm so excited that you'd think I was knitting a garment for Pope Francis.  It's just a dishcloth for Pete's Sake (who is Pete? I have no idea)!!  But all is going well.  I have to really watch my tension.  I am very prone to making my stitches very tight.  Thank goodness also for You Tube.  Of course I forgot Corey's method (my teacher at Wolseley Wool) of casting on so I had to search for a video.  Found one very quickly.  And then of course, I couldn't remember how to 'yarn over' as I was only shown that once in class and didn't record it on my iPad.  So, another You Tube search.  It's so great.  I have my MacBook (which I totally LOVE) on my lap and watch the video and stitch at the same time.  It's great!  So away I go......
