my first non-frogged project was this scarf made with Bernat Boa and Caron (?I think it's Caron?) Simply Soft. I think I finished the scarf around last New Year's Eve.

I am not fond of scarves, so I spent a lot of time looking for a project that was still good for a starter. Truth be known, I was going to knit the hat and then frog it. I was only going to use it as a big ole practice project, but my hubby said he liked it.

My first project was this hat for my dad. (Modeled here by my DH.) It's a pattern from Amy's free pattern links and knit with Lion Brand wool-something-or-other. I'd know the name for sure, but I'm too tired to go look in my stash for the leftover skein for the name. :rollseyes:

Here is my first. Thankfully, the picture quality is horrid, so the sweater looks pretty! I made it about 4 yrs ago. It is Lion Brand Microspun, so it is SOOO soft, but of course it made those twisty ridges as that kind of yarn is wont to do. I ran my ends under some rows to finish it, so of course they all stick out on the right side. But I love the color and it really was pretty impressive for a first project, if I say so myself. It even has eyelet around the waist and cuffs. And my big confession is that she never wore it! Her head was/is really big and the hood never fit, so I never let her wear it 'cause she would cry if she couldn't put the hood up. (She gets her stubborn streak from her father. )

It certainly is! My first project was a book mark, five stitches wide. :rollseyes:

I was 9. Then I made a Barbie skirt--which is a short horizontal bookmark.
