I just started knitting in October 2005. I've made 3 scarves and after completing my first hat I was full of confidence. In March, I started the Baby Bobbi Bear from Blue Sky Alpacas as a surprise for a friend's first baby, due in June. After a rough start, I'm just flying along. (I took a week-long break because I was stuck on reading the pattern but I took that time to make hubby a hat.) As I learn to understand the pattern, I am getting more and more excited.
These photos are as of this morning. In the first picture, you can see his little tushy.
