Welcome a New Knitter!

Over the last couple of weeks, Amy and I have been getting together so I could give her a refresher on the knitting basics.

She has been practicing the long tail cast on, knitting, purling, k2tog, the bar increase and casting off. She has done an amazing job and is already thinking about moving on from dishcloths to scarves and slippers.

Here she is casting on for another dishcloth (and proudly displaying her finished projects)!

I gave her a brief introduction to knitting blogs and Ravelry where we were searching for slipper patterns. Oh, what fun awaits her; knitting hats, mitts, turning her first sock heel, knitting sweaters, lace knitting, entrelac....

But, before all of that, I have a fun garter stitch slipper pattern for her next project.
