I started knitting when I was very young. My mother could look at anything and make it. This is how I describe my daughter too! She can look at things in the store and come home and make and improve it for her needs. I do NOT have that talent! It does make me proud of her, though! So I had a major gap in knitting (like 35 years), although I taught Melanie how to knit when she was young, I never really made anything UNTIL these Babes with Balls got it into my blood and now I am addicted. It is probably the timing in my life. My son is living in Japan, my daughter just went away to college. So now is my time! Oh I made a few hats here and there a few years back and usually that is what everyone gets for Christmas! haha from the Jew!
Here is a pic of my very first dishrag. Dont look too close because I made a mistake and didnt correct it! I figured that when I am wiping my countertops with it, it really wont matter. The other reason is if I tore it out, I dont know how to pick up the stitches again (this was my main reason!) So I am asking you guru knitters, how the hell do I do that! So next time, if I am making dishrags for gifts, they wont have flaws!
