Another knitting piece...

Happyone ,(thank you again), has given me such a great pattern to work on. My workpiece isn't as good as the pattern, I made a number of mistakes. But I was so excited working on it, because I learned how to decrease, increase and make a border. Also I'm not knitting as tight, and how much fun is it learning a new craft.

I have the "I Taught Myself Knitting" book, which I still had to go online for help. LOL Mine is smaller than the pattern, I got too excited and wanted to try the decreasing. I did two of the sides good on the pattern, but somehow I messed up something that didn't give me four sides the same. I'm going to make these in different colors so I can work on getting it more like the pattern.
