This little washcloth, all creamy and soft, is a sweet and practical project. A project I'm using to challenge myself to learn a few more complicated knitting moves!
Half a new washcloth!
This pattern has rows of plain knitting but also requires one to slip stitches, knit stitches together and knit into the front and the back of stitches. It took me a little while to get the hang of it but, now I have, it's taking shape, looking lovely and making me smile.
Whenever I have a new skill I want to learn, I break it down into steps if I can or into a sub-set of skills that I can transfer to other, more complex projects. While there may be frustrations, like dropped stitches and tangles, I find little successes encourage me to try something just that bit harder next time.
I'm not sure the same process will translate across to crochet, and I haven't had the slightest inkling to try as yet, but who knows...one day I may find myself taking that first step and ordering a crochet hook!
