I tried to start knitting last year - but never had the time to really work on it so I decided this year was the year. I finally finished my first scarf - and surprise to me, it's actually wearable!
It is a simple one stitch "pattern", and now I am ready to learn new techniques. The lovely ladies at Stitch N Bitch (a group of knitters, crocheters, crafters who meet weekly at Starbucks) are helping me with projects and I am now half way through my first dishcloth - which is teaching me increasing and decreasing. It's looking a little wonky but, hey it's a dishcloth, my dishes won't care!
