Are you sure this is your first project? Maybe you have been knitting in your sleep for years..........somewhere in your house is a closet full of half done, sloppy stitches, etc. like most everyone else has!!!

Great job!! Can't wait to see what project number 2 is!! :thumbsup:

Wow just took a look at everyones resposes! Thanks!

I love this knitting lark! Dont know why I never took it up earlier! Maybe its genetic, I remeber my nan used to knit. She tried to teach me when I was a kid, but I sucked! So never really gave it much thought!

But now im hooked!

Just keep :XX:

Well, great......just great.....back to the videos for me........ :rollseyes:

It's beautiful! I can't believe you put cables in your first project. You must be so proud of yourself! My first project was a garter stitch scarf and I won't show it to anyone.

Beautiful job!! :cheering: I just finished my first project and it was nothing, nothing, nothing near as beautiful as that!! You are obviously gifted with the knitting gene. ;)

Hello Gorgeous! WOW!

Nothin scares you, does it girl? <giggle>

WOW!!!! That's Vest-astic!!

Would you please wiggle some BRAVERY voodoo fingers at some of our other new knitters here?? I know they WANT some of what YOU got, girlfriend!!

Well my first FO was a plain garter stitch scarf in camo for my OMG 4 year old son at the time, hes 7 now. It looked like it had been through a war! The varigated colors hid a lot of mistakes. LOL But I washed it and it looked a little better. :) I kept that ragged thing to show all the new people I teach. And Im really glad I left all the "mistakes" in that simple scarf, cause it reminds me how to treat our children (or anyone) learning a new skill.

I think your hat looks great for a first project! And its gona take you no time to surpass your current skills, I promise. Thats what amazes me about knitting. Just a little practice yields great returns.
