Basket weave

Here's my latest creation, another dishcloth.  I really like this pattern, and it's so easy: knit 5, purl 5!  I think I shall try the next one with smaller squares (knit 3, purl 3) and see what develops... keep your needles crossed for me.

My first entry

This is where I will keep the details of my knitting projects and photos as well.

A little background for all who will read this, I started knitting about 2 months ago, after I lost my job.  I wanted to learn something that would keep me busy and occupy both sides of my brain.  One day, I saw a Learn to Knit kit that teaches how to knit cat toys at Target.  It came with a video and everything you need to make a few cat toys.  I have enjoyed knitting a lot so far, and I'm glad to have found a community of other men who are into it as well.

So far, I can only knit and purl in the English-style.  I can do simple increases & decreases, although I'm having trouble making the "invisible" increase (mine are plainly visible).  I have made all 3 of the cat toys the kit taught me (the fish, the mouse & the ball) and I started knitting dishrags.
