My First piece of work

ok so this is the first swatch i knit after practicing the knit and purl stitches and binding off. let me know what u guys think and suggestions are certainly welcome.

sorry its a little grainy i took it with my cell in the bathroom cuz the lighting was good, or so i thought lol

i think you did a good job. you were able to create a good square. and your stitches look quite even. :yay:

I agree, your stitches look nice and even. I think you are good to go!

Now that you have the official seal of approval, what is your first project going to be? I take it is something white?:slight_smile:

[CENTER]Your swatch looks very good. Nice and even and the yarn looks so soft!
GREAT WORK! :thumbsup:
So, what cha gonna knit now? I cant wait to see.[/CENTER]

I concur-GREAT job, it looks very even and well done! :thumbsup:

thank you guys so much

i would like to start with a simple scarf and maybe add some fringe at the end.

i have bought a really cute yarn that is multi colored(purple, yellow, green, orange,and blue blend) so it will make the scarf multi colored without having the bind colors (since i’m a little intimidated by that technique)

i have a question about my swatch though. when i look at it(although you can’t see it in the picture) both sides look like garter stitch…i was trying to make a stockinette stitch by alternating knit and purl rows. maybe i am purling incorrectly??

I think you did a good job on your swatch.

Great start :slight_smile: Now you are ready to go :slight_smile:

Greate start! Keep knitting.

If you knitted this in stockinette stitch it should be smooth on the other side.

Keep watching Amy’s vidoes. There is one where she does a small swatch. Watch it to the end - it’s very good.


It looks nice and square. You are definitely ready to make something. What will it be?
