My friend came to visit this weekend so we bought a ball of wool (cotton actually) and a pair of needles and she taught me the basics of how to knit, she thought I could manage a simple pattern by the time she left on Sunday, so I tried.

My first baby hat:


and with a baby head substitute:

It might look a funny shape, that's because it is. I didn't purchase a sewing up needle, none of my half a dozen needles fit wool, so I had to pin it together. Then I tried to put it on a balloon left over from our evening out over the weekend so there's a cardboard box in the back covering where the pins are so the balloon didn't burst before I took the picture.

the pattern is here: http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babyhattwoneedle.htm

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Looks great for your first project!  Your brave to try a pattern and a hat for your first project.  I did a plain garter stitch scarf for my first project (boring!). Smiley

Patterns don't seem that hard, except that I need a basic glossary first. Knitting seems to be mathematics crossed with dexterity, with a large splash of perseverance. I can probably manage the first two.....

That's a great way to describe knitting. Smiley

The hat turned out really well - hope you enjoyed making it.
