Knit MaryJane booties
This is my second pair of knit booties. I must say, this pattern though classified as easy and beginners, gave me a little bit of a tough time. I couldn't figure out the instructions and had to leave it for while and picked it up again after a week and it made sense! I'm proud of this one because I managed to get this done with no help at all and didn't give up even after frogging it out 2 times. I'm glad I stuck on until I understood the instructions properly. Although I must admit that it can turn out much better ...my knitting isn't all that smooth yet. The pattern is HERE But this was a good project and I learn't a few things :
1.to 'make one ' - left slant as well as the right slant

2.to slip, slip , knit decrease

3.to join yarn yarn at a particular point and knit from there onwards - this is the first time I've done this

4.to make a botton hole.

5.to accept that frogging out ( I hate it ) is a learning process and I cannot avoid it atleast not while I'm still learning! Maybe later on when I know knitting well enough I can get adventurous and avoid frogging out my work.

6.to use a stitch holder

7. Knitting needs constant counting !
