I haven't knitted much but here goes ;)

My first project was this hat, knitted on Dec 27th 09.
When I casted on for this, I was hoping it would fit my 3 yrs old son, but since I had never knitted before with more then 1 color, and had no idea how to weave the floats, the back of the pattern is sooooo tight that it could fit a Baby Born doll ! LOL :)

Then I made this hat from Unspun Icelandic Lopi and it fits me woohoo ;o) Made Dec 29th.

On Dec 30th I made this one, that actually fits my 3 yrs old son hehe :) The hearts on the hat didn't come out very clearly, but I like it and my son loves his hat :)
Got the pattern from this page (http://carissaknits.blogspot.com/2007/07/preemie-hats-for-charity.html)

Very nice!

I only ever used ONE color when I started...for a long time...and still don't like changing colors, so I admire your first project very much!

Thanks guys :)
I'm trying to tell myself that I can knit a sweater for my 3 yrs old son....but I'm afraid to try it.
Anyone know of any easy patterns for a winter sweater ?

Wow, that's a ton of finished product in a short time! You rock! Thanks for sharing. They are amazing. I waited quite some time to do more than a color or two in any project. I was a big chicken. You're awesome.

Your work looks great. I love the colorwork :) There's a bunch of nice easy patterns for sweaters. Making baby/child sweaters are the best way to start. Are you on Ravelry? That site is a great source for patterns. You can also get some easy patterns from sites like lionbrand.com or here:
