I FINALLY finished my first knitted project. Normally I get about halfway done, then frog it and start something else :)

It was just a dishrag, but then i made it too wide so i folded it in half and now it's a thick disk rag/pot scrubber and hotpad LOL.

But I learned how to knit, purl, cast on and cast off successfully so I'm one happy girl...now to find a semi-easy project I can work on that is not on tiny wrist killing needles :)

I am scared to bind off in cotton, I haven't done that before especially with smaller needles, I guess mine aren't too small, they are an 8, I tried using a 6 but that way way too much for me. LOL!

lol girls! i have found that size fives are the smallest that i can go with dishcloth cotton. it makes a nice tight weave, but doesn't kill my hands and wrists. i have used threes to make socks, and they are not that bad... you just have to have the right yarn size to go with them!

yay for a finished object tho!!
