I find knitting on 4 needles really easy but my granny taught me when I was a very small TP so I guess I've had a lot of years to get used to it

I like knitting on 4 needles. The 1st couple of rounds are usually a bit fiddly though.

Recently I have been k,p,k into 1 stitch. That makes little bobbles.

Tomorrow, my son is at nursery so I'm thinking i'll set aside 30 minutes to knit. Hmm, should I do blanket for daughter, blanket for grandfather or socks for my brother? They are all projects that need finishing

I was going to post this on the Mundane thread but then remembered there was a proper knitters thread...

I've just finished my first proper knitting project.  It's a baby blanket, lace and cable stripes and it's taken me a couple of months.  I've just washed it and it's now stretched out nice and flat to dry and it looks great   I'm amazed at how much better it looks now it's been through the washing machine, can't believe it's the same blanket and that I actually made it!  I may try and post a pic later on.

Thank you.  I used a pattern from Ravelry, made a few slight alterations here and there, mainly the edging style.
