Still no knitting. So lookie here, I'll show off the first thing I ever knit. It was almost 2 years ago when I bought Stitch and Bitch and finally figured this whole knitting thing out! I'd tried before but never caught on until this book.
This pattern was in Real Simple magazine a couple of years ago. I knew nothing about yarn substitutions or gauge swatches so lucked out when I found the Tahki Baby yarn this called for. Most people start with Red Heart, I started with $30 of expensive yarn! Most people start with a garter stitch scarf. Me, a ribbed hat. I am either very brave or very stupid! I still love this hat, even though the top ribbing is way screwed up! The yarn is so soft.
