First FO--A Humble Dishcloth
OK, it's just a simple knit-and-purl design, but I did it! There may be hope for me yet. . .

Thanks for the kind words. I thought it looked a little off of square, but maybe that comes with time and practice. I love to make these cloths, both knit and crochet, and they make great gifts for weddings etc. Heck, I might make some for our house!

I love knitted and crocheted cloths. My step mother told me when I did my first ever crocheted one that I would never go back to store bought ones and she was right. I think hand made ones are so much better!

Looks great.

Wonderful first FO!

And, just so you know, it would be wonderful if it were your 150th FO, too!

Nothing Humble about that. It's wonderful, and we know how important those knit/purls are in the proper sequence, and how it's no easy task to make sure they are!

Well done!

That looks great! Such a pretty color! You just keep right on knitting and purling, that's how you get better at it.
