Once upon a time I took a Creative Stitching class my last semester in college. I LOVED it. I learned many many forms of hand stitchery. It felt like we learned all but one, knitting! I must say I was a bit let down, but oh well, I came away from the class able to do many things that have come in handy over the years.
The pang of disappointment was renewed when I used dishcloths that were a gift to my mother-in-law. I loved them! I thought "I want to make these" and then I learned that they were knitted. Rats!
Fast forward to last week when I saw a knitted dishcloth posted on this very blog, by one very good friend who lives not too far from me. I thought "THAT'S IT! I AM GOING TO LEARN HOW TO KNIT!" After Dora gave me a basic lesson on knitting and the help of youtube videos I was able to create my very first hand knitted dishcloth all on my own.
I came across this cute owl sweater during my search for cute owl ideas.
These are the closest I could find to a pair of mittens I remember having when I was a kid.
