My First knitting project

This is the first knitting project I have ever done. I found out that I knit too tightly. The hat barely fits. I also got lost when I sat the project down. I didn't know if I left off on a purl row or a knit row. I figured it out after 2 rows. I now know how to tell the difference. At least It happened in a place that the hat still looks alright. I also use a needle size bigger just about on all my projects. Since this hat I have made other things and experimented with Fair Ilse. I love the challenge it brings. I will be getting a weaving loom soon. My mom is going to get me one for my Birthday. I am so excited. I love to learn new things that you can do with fiber. After that I want to learn how to spin. I am very lucky that I have plenty of time at work to work on crafts. I can do at least 3 if not 4 hours of knitting a day there. It is awesome.
Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Okay, first - I'm way jealous of the time you have to knit each day. =) Second - try to relax your shoulders when you knit, it might loosen things up for you! Have fun!!!!!

I can't believe all that you can do with yarn. If only I had a teacher to get me going. You showed me how to make a scarf out of yarn and I have already forgotten how to do it. I want to see your latest "Star Wars"

Have fun!!

That's almost the sort of hat pattern I have been looking for - one with garter stitch ribs around it. (I want three ribs however; and yours only has one.)
And the request was for an earflap hat as well.

I will keep on looking - just had a little break reading your great blog.

Happy knitting,
