I just started to learn to knit last week and this site has been a huge help! I thought I would show just how much I have improved from my very first object to my last practice. The very first thing that I tried was a simple knit square. As you can see, I had some problems loosing stitches.
Here is the last practice item that I made, which was a simple K2P2 rib square. This one is a lot better and I have the same number of stitches at the end as when I started!
Now that I have the basics down, I think it's time for me to work on an actual item! I'm thinking I'll just keep going with the K2P2 and make a scarf.
