Well, technically my first knit was the coffee dishcloth (see here), but this is my 'official' first project for my knitting class.

it took me a few hours for each mitt. 36 stitches on size 6 dpn. 2x2 ribbing. 6 inch wrist, 2 inch back and forth for thumb opening, and 7 rows and bind-off. The instructions were written out by my teacher but I lost them and made it up. They will be a gift to her because she is bringing me sock yarn and sz 2 dpns to start knitting socks, and she'll use them more than I would anyway; the wool itches me something crazy.

These look really good for your first knit, esp as you used DPNs!! I've been knitting for beards, and I still hate DPNs. I'm sure your teacher will be pleased to wear them.

woah, great job!  I didn't use DPNs anywhere near my first knit.  I'm sure that your teacher will be extremely happy!   Grin

They look great!  Your stitches and ribbing are so nice and even, and I can tell you that I for sure didn't use DPNs on my first project!  Awesome job  Cheesy
