I've been knitting for about a month now and after generating some holey monstrocities, I have found out how to produce moderately nice, if occasionally slow, knitting.
These are some Christmas presents, now wrapped and under the tree.
A nice ribbed scarf and hat for my little sister
A gorgeous wooly ribbed scarf for my mother in the softest wool imaginable.
I have also managed a hat for myself and am now half way through a gorgeous sweater for my long suffering cat Hendrix. He is going to have a wooly jolly Christmas this year.
