I'm working on a hat for myself. It's not strictly speaking my first hat because I learned how to crochet making hats, but it'll be the first hat that I've actually made for myself. Which is funny, because the whole reason I learned to crochet over a year ago was because I wanted to make myself a hat.

I started it a little over a week ago so it's not entirely a November thing, but I haven't been able to work on it since Wednesday because my hands have been hurting incredibly. Hopefully that will clear up soon and I can finally make my first hat for myself!

Oooh, i can actually join in on this one!!

I'm S L O W L Y knitting the DNA scarf and have only completed one repeat (35 rows) of the pattern. (too much grading at night... hrmph!)

It's a lot of firsts for me wrapped in one!

- i've never knit with fancy posh yarn and i'm using silk/alpaca

- i've never had to read a pattern that's a coded picture and not written out, line by line.

- i've never had to use a lifeline before

and the biggie:

- i've never knit cables before - EVER!

So i'm learning a lot from this project - i just wish it was going a little faster!!

Hopefully i'll be done by the end of November. I had better be - Xmas is just around the corner!!! ARGH!

Thanks Hilde - EXCELLENT idea!!

Cool Idea! I was thinking about making a sweater for my dog. Not is it only the first time I will have made her anything, but it will be the first time I will be doing a more complicated pattern than Stockinette, garter, or 2x2 ribbing. This one is a basketweave pattern for a doggie cardigan made in one piece. And first time using stitch markers. I hope I don't get confused.

Thanks Hilde

Hey, I can join this one! I'm currently knitting a (warning, technical terminology) 3-color-striped-jumper/onesy-type-thingy for a baby. And I've never done a stripe before! You know.. the kind that doesn't come from self striping yarn. Hey, nor have I ever knit a jumper/onesy-type-thingy!

Hmmmm...........I haven't participated in a monthly KAL before- I think I can manage this one!! That is, in amongst the Christmas stuff I'm frantically trying to finish. I'm not too sure what I'm going to try to make. Maybe socks? I was going to wait until after Christmas to try them, but maybe I'll give it a go now. We'll see!! :D

Awww thank you Kelly!
But don't forget, I've only been knitting for a few years. I haven't had time to do everything yet. But, I will say there's nothing I won't at least TRY!
