Finished my first project
ok took me over 2 weeks to make, is a real mess because I used it to learn how to knit, mostly done in garter stitch with some stockinette and something I don't even think is a stitch at all LMAO. And even though it looks horrible, I am so proud

I think it's great! I'm a newbie and am knitting a scarf in entirely garter stitch right now. I'm pretty proud of it even though it is simple.

That is wonderful! Make sure you keep that picture! I never took pictures of any of my early projects, and I really wish I had. Darling little one, too!

New to knitting...
Hey, remember we ALL started out like this. I speak with customers everyday that say 'Well, I can knit a dishcloth"...we all started with dishcloths, scarves, etc.

Keep up the good work,
Rhy :-)

Thanks for sharing! :-) My kids are already asking me to knit them scarves for this winter and I've only been knitting for a couple weeks! I'm just now starting an actual project - a regular old washcloth LOL for myself (and I'm going to buy myself some nice body wash from Body Works to go with it)... but I can't wait to post a picture of it! :-)

I am really enjoying seeing what everyone is making, especially newbie knitters!

thanks for all the comments. The main thing for me is that Rohan (my son in the picture) loves it, he has been wearing it all day lol, only problem is here winter is almost over and I hope he doesn't decide he has to wear it in the middle of summer LMAO.

And I just finished making a booty! been doing it all day but it is finished wow!
