Here is my knitted tablecloth I am working on. I am using 3.5mm needles and size 10 Aunt Lydia crochet cotton in white. I am loving each and every single stitch!
It's not perfect, let's face it if I am knitting perfect doesn't even become part of the conversation, but for a first time tablecloth, I think it might be ok. I hope to do many more and slowly develop the skill of knitting lace. I love knitted lace.
Ok now we must all agree and pinkie swear to not tell the crochet (and that includes Mo and Jo) I can only image the stuff that would come out of Jo's mouth and the tears that Mo would cry...nope, we all have to stick together on this and not say a word. Ok? Ok!
I am still working on the crochet tablecloth, too....but not as much as the knitted one. But once I tire of the knitting (which translate into once I make a major mistake) then I will be back to crochet with bells on I am sure.
My goal is to one day be as comfortable with knitting as I am with crochet. I can find any mistake I make in crochet quickly and fix it, I have no stress when I crochet. When I knit I hold my breath and pray I don't make a mistake because I am not always sure I can figure out how to get back to where the mistake is at and fix it. But I figure that will come with time.
Oh my pattern is from I Can't Believe I am Lace Knitting, it's the Diamond Lace Tablecloth.
In the mean time, keep those hooks/needles flying!
