I have tried this before several years ago with another blog I kept. I sadly failed to get past the first 5 days! I’m hoping I can follow through this time!
Day 1: What was your first finished project?
I hate to admit it, but I don’t think I remember my first finished project. I have been trying to knit since I was 8 years old and at the ripe old age of 44, I made a New Years resolution to learn to knit in 2012. I went to Joann Fabrics and purchased size 8 bamboo long needles (which I still have), a skein of some Lion Brand yarn (can’t remember which one) and this book:
I sat in the recliner every day and worked and worked at getting it right. I guess the timing was right because I did learn to knit! And in one short year I was already knitting lace designs!
I regret not taking any photos of things that I knit in the very beginning. I probably knit some scarfs, hats and a bunch of dishcloths just trying to master the art of knitting. I do have a picture of my first photographed item (after I found Ravelry):
I began the pattern December 30, 2012 and finished the fingerless gloves on January 19, 2013. I made them for a girl a church that was always so cold! I am so glad that I finally sat down to learn to knit. It is really the only craft I partake in anymore.
What was the first thing you ever knit?
