My Knitting progress

Well ladies I thought I would share my knitting process with you. I learned how to knit, in 2010, Just straight knit. Though I have not tried knitting anything in the last 6 months, I thought I would give it a try.  I am left handed and it took me a really long time to learn. As you can tell I am still learning.
I am told a great way to practice is just knit. So I have begun making my dolls scarves. I have not yet tried purling but I have straight knit and created this red scarf for my doll.
I started with casting 8 stitches on and knit until the scarf was about 15 inches long. I will try to use different sized needles next time and keep practicing. This scarf only took me about an hour and while it has mistakes, I am thrilled with how it turned out.
I would love to hear from others of you who have just started knitting, I hope that my attempt at learning to knit may inspire you to make something for your dolls too.
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave a comment here or email me at


  1. I am in the process of learning to knit too! I made one practice piece and Natalie uses it as a doll blanket. I am almost done with my second piece - also a scarf for the dolls. I will definitely post it once I am done. Keep practicing and I'm sure one day we will be able to do more than just straight knit!

  2. That scarf looks really cute on Saila :)

  3. Take my hat off to you! I've been knitting since I can remember so can't imagine just starting to learn! Well done!
