my first knitted project
I have finished my very first knitted project It is no where near perfect. I think I did fine on the right bootie, but for some reason I had to start over six times on the left bootie. I just coudn't get it going or either I would get close to the end and mess up really badly. You can see a mistake I have pointed out in the picture. It is below the word mistake. I had the most trouble with my yarn splitting. I was using sport weight yarn and 3mm needles. Maybe I started with too small a yarn and needles for a beginner? Anyway, I am so excited that they even look like booties. I just wanted to share.

I think you did a great job! My first knitted project was a scarf; you're much more brave.

Those are so cute! You did great!

I put the picture in your post so it's easier and people don't have to load pages twice. If you need help with photos click the link in my signature.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Great job for a first project. They look really good. You don't want to see my first knitting project. I am told it was supposed to be a scarf but it looks like a floor mop rag to me!!! Way to go!
I love to give homemade gifts... which one of my kids do you want?

Are those Saartje's booties (sorry if the spelling's wrong!)? They're adorable! And I love the colour, pink's my favourite. Good job!
