I am SO proud of me - first project completed!
I so wish I had a digital camera, but I completed the kitty dish cloth on http://www.knittingknonsense.com/catcloth.html (another member had posted this link). The cloth came out so soft and nice.

I visited my local yarn store (http://www.mainstreetyarns.com/) and bought real yarn! Ooooh it was ssoooooooooooo nice; much better than that yucky yucky acrylic yarn I was practing with that I bought at Michael's. I bought some 100% mercanized cotton yarn. One of the yarns, a nice cornflower blue color, said it called for size 8 needles, but I cast on and completed the cloth on size 7 needles. It took a bit of time, time over 3 days, probably cuz the yarn was a bit big for needles, but it came out so nice!

I working on the dog cloth now, using yarn that says it should be one size 6 needles but am casting htem on the same size 7 needles. This is going sooooooo much faster. I'm already almost halfway done. I think I may knit a bit "tight" so giong up a needle size to a 7 with the size 6 yarn has helped a lot!

Am giving the cat cloth to mom and the dog cloth to my MIL for mother's day. Will also made some stripped handclothes with the leftover yarns for them too!

Congrats on your first project! The cat pattern is very cute. If you don't have a digital cam, you could always go to one of the photo places that will put them on disk for you. We are a very visual group here...we love to see what everyone's doing
