After many years of trying to knit I decided last week that I would tackle knitting and make it work. After purchasing size 15 needles and nice and thick yarn I finished my first real project a scarf. I thought that a great way to encourage us to knit and finish our project by creating a thread for completed projects large or small. What have you completed?

Congratulations on your first completed knitting project!
I've only been knitting one thing this year and it's not finished yet, so I'll have to post the photo when it's done. It's either going to be a vest or a sweater (for my son), depending on how much yarn I have, lol. The yarn is some that I bought 20 years ago and thought I'd use to make him a Christmas sweater. I made him a sweater with the same yarn when he was in kindergarten, so this is kind of fun. He's probably coming to visit in a couple of weeks, so I'll give it to him then. I really hope I can make a whole sweater rather than just a vest, but if not, oh well.

I don't knit often, though I know how and have taught my daughters and stepdaughter.

I have been crocheting lately and completed this bad in a lime green cotton (from Hobby Lobby) and it turned out great. Then I gave it to my daughter.

I should have her take a photo and I can post it.

I'm currently crocheting a spring purse for myself. I don't have a pattern, I just made a goodsized oval for the base, and am tightly double crocheting upwards till I'm complete. The plan is to then line it with a sturdy and bright patterned fabric, add an inner pocket or two, and complete it with purchased handles. It's in just a natural off-white color. What's nice is that there is no stress, I have time to finish it.

I have been contemplating knitting again, and found a cute pattern for a hat with earsflaps, as I have a daughter in college in Iowa. Maybe I'll get that started and see how I do.

Congratulations on your scarf! Is it a heavy outdoor scarf or one to wear inside? I have several fashion scarves that I'm trying to wear more -- I frequently forget about them when I dress. It is surprising how much warmth they provide on a cool day inside.

I have several sweaters made that are just waiting for finishing. I fear I knit for the 'process', not the 'product'!

I also have just finished a sock -- something I said I would never knit 'cause I'm not a sock-wearing gal. But the lure of fun yarn should not be dismissed and so one sock is done and another is in the works. The first one didn't fit very well, so I'm making adjustments as I go. Fingers are crossed that three socks can be made of one ball instead of just two!

I wish I could be more that way! I actually get rather impatient with the process, which is why I sometimes abandon knitting projects. In fact, the sweater I'm knitting now started out as an abandoned knitting project, so maybe I'm learning.

I just finished my first real thing from a pattern. It's a dog sweater. The first one turned out too small but that was based on their measurements which were wrong. The gauge was exact and I used the same yarn.

I'm such a newbie to knitting but I'm bored with scarves. How many scarves can one person wear?

I really want to try a sweater next. My son who's 6 said he likes this one Hoodie.

I'll try to get a picture up of my little dog sweater.

Cute sweater, Kimmysue. I would even like that for myself. I think you should go for it! Especially now -- Lion Brand is on sale at our Michaels's and also at Hancock's I think.

Its a heavy scarf to wear outside... the only problem is I don't need it for South Florida living. I don't really know anyone up north to send it to either

LOL Good luck with the socks.

Kimmysue,

I love the picture of the hoodie but after reading the directions I can't imagine it is a beginner pattern. Please let me know how you do with it.

I asked my mom who is a much more experienced knitter and she said it wasn't complicated. In order to get the neckline, I guess you just knit with two balls of yarn and two sets of needles.

My mom made me this for Christmas which is just basically an extra large scarf that you fold over to make arms, Tzara. You might even be able to make it in a lightweight fabric for chilly Florida winter evenings.
