After crocheting for years and deathly afraid of trying knitting, I finally caved after buying some gorgeous handspun yarn from Biggie.etsy.com.  I think knitting for me was easier to learn with thick yarn and big needles, it was just easier to see what the darn-heck I was doing

Of course the first time you knit, you have to do a scarf like thing (it's like in the knitters manual right?) so I made a cowl for next winter!



Obligatory goofy-face action shot - please forgive the total lack of having done anything presentable to myself



So many newbie mistakes (like I think I drop some stitches because I have a few holes?) but I love it just because I did it  Cheesy

Thanks for looking, any comment/criticisms welcome!

Sooo pretty.  Great idea to do a cowl instead of a scarf (which can be long and boring).

The holes could also be accidental yarn overs (I still have my first scarf complete with holes and now I can tell the difference between dropped stitches and yarn overs).

Thanks everyone!  It is always scary to post your first of anything but I always feel the love here on craftster  Kiss

I didn't know about this!  I will for sure try to notice next time if this is what I am doing, thanks!!!
