Ive been teaching myself to knit for about a week now, and wanted to just make a couple small things to start.
First is my is a wrist cuff-let. Due to some prior injuries i have wrist pain when every i do anything with a lot of repetative motion so i have to take breaks, this cuff-let holds my needles quite well..
Its knitted in a simple garter stitch on number 8s and i just dropped two sitches on both ends to hold the tails to tie it together loosely.
Next is a knitted keychain again a simple garter stitch on 8s with some dropped stitches and yarn over to break up the boringness. I k2tog a few times toward the end just to bring it to a point and knotted it on a large keyring.
