My first ever knitting project
And you can totally tell! lol. . . .I am the type of person to jump right in to a new hobby so instead of doing something like a washcloth I made wool shorties for my boy. It took for.ev.er. There are lots of mistakes but he loves them



Knitting is so much fun, hopefully I am able to improve enough that I am not embarrassed to show pictures of my projects lol.

Congratulations on your first completed project. The shorties look super--and your kiddo is happy with them, too. I'd mark that down as a success!



Mistakes are just learning opportunities and nothing to be ashamed of!!

Congratulations!! Your son loves them because you made them. He sees the love not the mistakes.

Thanks so much, you guys are too kind lol. Next. . .I'm thinking of attempting to conquer (key word. . .attempting. . .) SOCKS! I have some pretty pink/maroon/brown yarn to make something for my girls (11 months) but I want to be a bit better before I attempt that, I figure socks would be a good way to learn and improve. Am I way off? Should I try something else?

You could go on to socks. I expect you'd do quite well with them. You might consider a hat that's knit in the round first, just to give yourself more practice. However, if socks you want to do, go for it!

Aw, cute. I think somehow making clothes for kids is very inspirational for moms.

Socks is not a bad idea. I would suggest reading something about the sock anatomy or maybe having someone explain the steps first, in English. Because of many little manipulations, the pattern might seem long and intimidating. So knowing what those steps are for helped me quite a bit.

Other than that -- go for it and have fun!

I learned to knit socks with this, not a pattern but a how to http://pulsh.blogspot.com/2009/05/li...ks-videos.html just in case you'd like to check it out. There is something very satisfying about socks.
