Learning a new knitting stitch

I've been sick for about a week now (bleh!) and I haven't really felt like playing with paper. I did make my neighbors Halloween birthday party invites, but I didn't get a picture of them before I sent them off.

I've been playing around with this knitting stitch called the linen stitch. I learned it from a site that I often reference when I'm in the mood to add more to my knitting knowledge. The site is I taught myself to knit using her tutorial videos.

This is the piece I am working to get my hands use to the linen stitch.

I see place mats, coasters, and hot pads in my future.  :)


  1. Hi Heather :) I have just come across your blog. I could not knit to save myself so I am a little in awe. Love the pic of your dogs. You have such a great button. I've grabbed it! Looking forward to your future posts.

    1. For the longest time, I couldn't figure out how to knit either until I came across the site I was trying to learn how to make these awesome dishcloths my grandmother makes. She has a lot of videos that make the learning easy. :)
