My first project was the trio of little birds I made from the pattern I found here.

http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2007/02/19/birds-of-a-feather/

I just happened to have the three bright colors of the same yarn in my stash, so I went for it.  Because the birds crochet up so quickly, they make a really satisfying first project.  I started with the yellow, then the pink, then the blue and feel like I improved as I worked on each of them.

For my next project, I chose the "Best Bunny" project on the Lion Brand Yarn website.  Unfortunately, I chose to use this fuzzy pink angel hair yarn that I got for nearly nothing at a JoAnne that is going out of business.

OMG, I thought that yarn would be the death of me.  After completeing the head and body and several mangled arms, I scrapped the rest of the pattern and made the arms, legs and ears on my own.  Even with my limited experience,  I think Lulu, the pink fuzzy bunny turned out pretty cute.  Smiley

Thanks for checking out my Amis.  Smiley

Lovely job on those birdies...And as for the angel yarn...haha. It will be the death of me. I have some angel wings yet to finish that hurt me just to think about (which is why they are still sitting in my WIP bag...*sigh*) Anyway, great first projects!
