Works in Progress: Dishcloths
Hey all, my wife wanted to learn how to knit, and after getting the basics down she wanted to learn how to increase and decrease, so I'm teaching her how to do so, so we both cast on and are knitting a couple of dishcloths. I'm a bit farther in mine, but from what I can see, she's progressing pretty well, mine's on the left, hers is on the right. Comments are always welcome.

Excellent teacher and very apt pupil. The knitting is very nice and even and the increases look good, too. Good project and great colors to work with.

"I'm teaching my wife to knit" that's not something you hear everyday lol! Both dishcloths look great, well done you for teaching her.

well thank you, she wanted to learn, since my SIL also was learning, now if I can steer them both here, they can get their questions answered whenever I'm not around
