So I got a fancy new knitting book for my birthday a month ago called "The Knitter's Bible".  It's full of every stitch I've ever seen and some I hadn't.  I decided that I'd do a simple project that would showcase a stitch I'd never tried before. 

Now this seems like a great idea for a new knitter but I have been knitting basically my entire life,   my mom and grandma taught me when i was 5 or 6 [I'm 20].  I am afraid of failure and have been picking easy things to knit so that I'm not disappointed and so I don't have to pull it all out and start all over again. 

ANYWAYS,  true to nature I picked the moss stitch with a rib on either end but I think it turned out pretty cool:






Here's a close up of the super cool sort of frosted green buttons...




here's a close up of the freaking amazing button holes that I'm so proud of.  Best button holes I've ever made.



aaaand finally this is what it looks like on.   It's not as warm as I was hoping for but its acrylic yarn so that's probably why.

Next time I'm just going to go for it and knit a sweater.

Moss stitch scares me. I have nightmares of yarn overs and holes everywhere.  I LOVE the look of it!  verra cute!  The green buttons are a great flash of color!

I got them at Shoppers Optical at the local mall in Vancouver,  they were a real find for sure.   They're by Vogue so they probably aren't too hard to find.   I actually ran into another girl a few days ago who had the same pair   Cheesy
