Knitted dishcloth challenge

Your to do list is long and your craft basket is full so when you come across a knitting challenge, the only thing to do is jump in feet first right?
Melissa from one crafty mumma started a challenge at the beginning of last month to knit a washcloth a week. She had found some gorgeous patterns and shared them with us. You can get the links on her blog.

Knitting is something I haven't done since I learnt how to crochet so I had to brush up on terminology and stitches and even find some needles.
I started a little late with the challenge so sharing week 1 and 2 with you today. Week 1 is a beautiful leaf lace pattern which I struggled with a little to start, unpulling and starting over a couple of times before I changed my needles to a bigger size and worked the pattern out. I still have to block this one but happy with my first go at knitting in years!
You can find the details and patterns on Mel's blog Here.

Week 2 is the pretty Teardrop pattern which I found much easier to do than the first one, that may be because I haven't knitted in ages though.
You can't ind the details and pattern on Mel's Blog.

I must say I am enjoying knitting again after so many years of crochet even if it does take alot longer to complete.
Week 3 dishcloth pattern and details are already up on Mel's blog and i will be tackling that over the weekend hopefully.

Thanks for visiting
Lis :)
