Here it is - my first completed knitting project. There are quite a few flaws in the hat, but I am proud of it anyway.
The finished piece before sewing up the seam. It took me a lot of hours to complete that much knitting!
And I bought some cotton yarn yesterday, looked up an easy pattern for a dishcloth online, and made my first dishcloth last night. It took me four hours.
One great hint that Nona gave me was to search on YouTube for help with stitches. There are some really helpful videos for basic knitting. So if you are wanting to learn or just need a refresher lesson, YouTube is an excellent source.
Certainly looks like I have a preference for yellow yarn. Maybe it is just the anticipation of springtime.
