Yesterday I finished my first practice piece. It's a square with a picture of a kitty. This is the pattern I followed: http://www.knittingknonsense.com/catcloth.html

I did mine in red. Sorry I have no pic, but I'm at work and my modem at home died so I couldn't post the pic from there.

But, YAY! I can knit! :XX: Binding off was way easier than I thought it was going to be. Now I have to move on to decreasing and increasing. That kinda scares me.

Wends-
Yeah! I recently just started knitting too! I was so excited once I learned the knit and purl stitch. for me, the purl stitch was a bit tricky but once I stumbled upon this awesome website with free videos, I got it!

Currently I am making a scarf for my dog child. But thanks for sharing the knitted cat cloth link. My folks have a cat and with Mother's Day coming up, this would make a cute, thoughtful gift......

Yes I was just telling a few of my co-workers (non-knitters) about knitting the scarf for my dog child and how I was going to make the washcloth above and they kept saying look at her eyes, look how excited she is. And I am very excited to have this awesome hobby/passion that women have been doing for hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years. It makes me feel girlie and connected the past and present.

That's a great pattern, and one of the first things I knit, too. I use her dishcloths as presents for kids - they make great washcloths for the bath if you use cotton.
