My First Knitting Project Ever

February 21, 2012 at 12:55 pm Leave a comment

A little over a week ago, my mom and I took a knitting 101 class at a fabric store in the city.

Although it confirmed my beliefs that knitting is hard, by the time it was over, I was able to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off. Not bad for one 2 hours class!

I’ve been practicing a little every day since then with the terrible fear that I’m going to forget how to do it all if I don’t. Fortunately, I haven’t forgotten yet, and I even finished my first project!

Actually, it wasn’t really a project per say. I really just started knitting for practice, eventually got tired of it, and binded it off so I could start something more interesting.

I warn you, this is the first thing I’ve ever knitted, so it’s quite terrible really. But because I actually knitted it, I’m quite proud of myself really.

I decided it’s a pot holder. Considering the loose knit of it, it probably will make a terrible pot holder, but it looks more like a pot holder than anything else I thought.

Next, I want to figure out how to rib and make a ribbed scarf. By the time I finish it, it will probably be spring and I won’t need a scarf anymore, but who knows, maybe we’ll have a late spring snow or something. 🙂
