a knitted apple a day


Well. After frogging my knitted socks about 14 times, I figured maybe I set my sights a little too high with those pointy needles and a sock pattern that is geared for experienced knitters.

So, I downsized my expectations and started an easier knitting project.




A knitted apple cloth which can be found here. And I don't know if it was this gorgeous-ly soft cotton yarn that I used -- or this ultra-easy (but still manages to look stunning) pattern or a mind-set that I finally hit upon:
.
This is not crochet. It does not involve the same tools. It does not involve the same stitches.
.
So ---> stop comparing it to crochet!




And just enjoy this for what it is:

a relaxing, soothing way to create cloth with just yarn & needles.
