Good job! That's eons better than my first crack at knitting! It's hard teaching yourself, since so many little mistakes could be avoided if you had a teacher!

This was my version:

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley
