Adventures in Knitting

Last month I finally caught on to knitting. I figured the best way to get down the knit stitch was to make a few things with it.

I started with the scarf that I posted about in my Learning to Knit post. I just finished it the other day. It took me a while because I had set it aside to work on an Afghan.

My first knit scarf!!!

The Afghan I mentioned above is for my daughter. This was a fantastic way to make sure that I have the knit stitch down and a great stash buster.

Now that I have the knit stitch down I am moving on to purl. I just started my first hat yesterday. I am using the Easy-Fit Ribbed Hat Pattern free from Red Heart. So far it is going pretty good. We will see what happens when I get to the decreases.

Here are some wonderful Knit Christmas Stocking Patterns that I have found. Some of these patterns are way more advanced than I am capable of with my knitting skills. They are motivating me to keep practicing.
