I can’t stop knitting!

I just started this project yesterday on my new 3.75mm needles. I managed to teach myself how to purl, and how to knit/purl two stitches together (k2tog, p2tog), which decreases your number of stitches (in this case, making the sides of the work slant inwards slowly).  I learned that alternating knitted rows with purled rows creates the stockinette stitch, which can be seen in this picture (sort of chevron-shaped stitches).

Want to know what I’m making?  You’ll have to wait and see…
