Here's is link (I hope.) to my first knitting project.  I am not sure what it is suppose to be, but I am calling it a dishcloth.  Lol.

Anyways is this what the knit stitch is suppose to look like?

AND, does purling get easier?  I think I have the knit stitch down, (if I am doing it right...), but haven't quite got the hang of purling!

TIA,

Susan

Hi Susan,

Looks like you've done a nice job! I think in the photo you have the reverse side (purl) facing the camera. It looks like you did stockinette stitch (knit 1 row, purl 1 row).

Yes, the more you knit, the easier it gets. Don't give up!

Here's what the other side looks like.

Thanks, Linda and Cheryl! 

Linda-- I hadn't figured out the purl when I did this, but now I think I have it down pat.

Cheryl--I will look into the yahoo group.  I have looked at the knitting videos, but only when I am at the library.  (On dial-up at home so it takes too long!)
