Learning to knit and purl

So I recently was taught how to knit by a friend. I learned how to cast on and do the simple knit and purl stitches. Fortunately, I know how to crochet, so I caught on fairly quickly. I’m starting to really master it now, and have decided it’s time to tackle a “real” project instead of continuing to make blobs (i.e. never ending rows of stitches).

So, for my first project I am making….(drumroll, please!)…this nifty bolero:

I found this free pattern on Pinterest (where else?!).  And I’m pretty excited to try it out.

Wish me luck!! I’ll post about my progress semi regularly (hopefully I will have positive progress to share), so stay tuned!

Are you a knitter? If so, what are you working on right now? If not, would you like to be? Or are you crafty in some other way? I’d love to hear all about it!!
