When knitting goes bad........

Grrrrr. Starting my next project. Perhaps I should rephrase that TRYING to start my next project. A baby blanket for a friend. First try of casting on I didn't have a long enough loose end. Second try, still not enough. Third or fourth try finally worked. It's knit on circular needles, but not in the round. Well, I screwed up and knit in the round. Unravel, cast on again. This time much better. Until about 4-5 rows into it I notice that there aren't as many rows on one half as there are on the second half. How does this happen?!? I guess that'll teach me to not knit and talk on the phone at the same time. Sigh. And did I mention it's in seed stitch, which I'm still getting used to, so it's a pain in the ASS!!!

My First Knitting Project

Ta Dah!!! My Booga Bag is done. My very first completed knitting project. Grandma would be proud to know that all those attempted scarves and potholders eventually led to this.

I made it with Plymouth Yarn Outback Wool - it felted up pretty darn quick, 10-15 min.
