Pathetic knitting effort!

Well I have been trying to knit today. I managed to start off okay, but then I kept dropping stitches and doing all kinds of odd things. I had the intention to make a scarf for a Barbie sized person. I decided the turquoise one was too thick, so I tried with the purple one. I think I definitely need more practice! The Stitch and Bitch book has been most useful in teaching me, as has the help and encouragement of fabulous knitter Eleanor. She has made some quite wonderful things that I can only dream of at this point in time -my holey squares really aren't much to be proud of, though I do quite like them because they are the first things I have knitted.

Little holey squares is how I started - they'll soon be big, unholey (ha) rectangles aka scarves. Well done!

Well I have now managed a very small unholey rectangle. At least I'm moving in the right direction!
