Not A Dishrag

I have been a crazy, dishrag knitting fool lately.  I feel like I knit them all the time.  They're so portable and easy to work with.  Plus I can practice new patterns on a small scale and still end up with something useful.  Win win.  Here's my latest.

A friend of mine recommended a new website the other day called New Stitch a Day.  It's a fantastic website filled with easy to follow instructions and videos.  Plus they email you a new technique or stitch everyday.  Somehow, through their site, I found this little knitted bunny nugget.  I had also seen it on Pinterest and I just decided it was time.  Time to knit something "not a dishrag".

I finished it up after the kids went to bed and it was actually not that difficult.  I'm kind of proud of it...even if it looks like a little kid knit it.

Those circular needles with the skinny little ears were by far the hardest part.  But still, not a dishrag. 

I'm linking up with Ginny at Small Things for the Yarn Along.  I'm reading Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare.  I'm not too far along yet but enjoying it. 

Oh, I almost forgot! My knitting that pattern is NOT the most exciting thing that happened in the world of knitting today. My 6 yr old son learned to knit with needles. Needles he and I made together no less. He is thrilled.

So am I.

Oh how fun that your 6yo is knitting :) I have taught both of my kids to knit- they go in spurts LOL
I also like the bunny nugget :)

Thank you. He's been finger knitting and castle knitting this past year but he's been wanting to learn on needles for quite a while. We're so proud!
