I had my first beginner knitting class on Sat. and by sunday I was BORED just practicing the knit stitch. So, I looked on this website at the videos and learned the purl stitch - not hard at all.
Then I started doing a knit 3 purl 1 and that went fine
So, I'm starting a dishtowel doing a pattern of knit 3, purl 1 down one row and then knit down the next and then start over.
I'll wait for my next Sat. class to find out how to end the project. We weren't supposed to learn the purl stitch til the next class but I get bored easily and want to LEARN and start knitting!!
