The 30 Day Knitting Challenge: Day 1

1. What was your first finished project?

Ooh this is a hard one. You see I wasn’t a knitter first. When I was little I was a cross stitcher. And by little I mean 7 or 8. This means I have no idea what my first completed cross stitch was, but the one I remembered most and, until recently, was on the bedroom wall in my parents house was this.


This is not mine. It is the same pattern but from eBay.

I mean at the age where I loved cross stitch I did crochet and knit but not very successfully. I always became impatient. Crochet or really stuck with me when I was about 17. And knitting? The very kind ladies at knit and natter taught me about 9 months ago with much patient on their behalf and much swearing on mine. So I suppose the first thing I knitted when I had official learnt to knit was my baby hat. That was too big to be a hat for a baby. Way too big, it fit my teenage brother. But what it was was very neat.


For my first completed project looking back at it now in very proud.

  1. I love your first knitted project! Much neater than my first attempt! I’d love to do this challenge but I don’t think I have been knitting for long enough or worked on enough projects yet. Like you, I started with cross stitch then crochet, I’m still working on my knitting! Maybe in a couple of years I’ll do this though! (I’ll probably still be working on my never-ending scarf then!!!)
