My dishcloth didn't turn out so well, in fact, I knitted so tight I couldn't even bind off! I'm in a knitty funk right now so I've been watching knitting videos on youtube and came across this It starts off slow but the last 2 minutes are awesome!
Hope everyone has a great week!

WIPS - Interrupted

I have casted on the dishclothes from KrisKnits this week, but I'm learning some valuable things this week:
  • College interferes with my knitting. I had to postpone an exam this week because of my
  • Reading from a pattern isn't as easy as I thought it would be, but still doable
  • FROG is a new potty word!!
I'm having difficulty keeping my place and am having to go back and count stitches alot. Are there any easy ways to keep track of where I am in the pattern??

FO - Turn a Square Hat

I finished this project last night and all that's left is to block. I am very satisfied with the outcome and I also learned to ssk. SSK was somewhat difficult at first but got easier as I worked on. The first 5 rows are 2x2 ribbing, but with the darkness of the yarn it's sort of hard to tell.Hopefully I can hold out until Xmas to give my nephew his new hat!

Next, I'm casting on the Beach dishclothes from KrisKnits on www.!

This is the other WIP that I have. I have had to learn 2x2 ribbing (k2, p2) and increasing (M1) for this project. Check out for tutorial videos for this skills or For the pattern, you can go to, username pootersgirl and it's in my WIP and it is a free pdf download. I'm still using the Addi Turbo circular needles and I absolutely love them! I have a couple of dishcloths patterns that I will be casting on in the next couple of days so check back for updates!

WIP - Easy Peasy Hat

Today was quite a busy day! I did get several rows completed today on my WIP and posted a pic and the brim is already beginning to roll up like the pattern says. My son, Hunter turned 7 today so we were really busy having his party tonight! I can't believe he is 7!!!

I decided to bite the bullet and casted on my first hat a couple of days ago. Since then, I've had to frog this WIP several times and I have learned a valuable lesson! It is extremely important to lay your needle flat after casting on and make sure all the stitches are going the same direction! I realized this after getting mine twisted several times. Once I got this accomplished today, I am making some serious headway! I must say that I LOVE these Addi Turbo circular needles! To check out the pattern go to


I am as new to knitting as I am to blogging!
