It's not a matter of size, but a matter of heart.

Yayness! I've finally finished my FIRST knitting project!!  It's about 35" long, and about 12" wide done in seeded rib...
I made it for my moms' boyfriends' mom who lives in Scotland. She's got Arthritis and can't knit anymore.
pattern was found here:
http://www.cocoknits.com/knit/garments/accessories/fear-of-commitment-cowl.html
 it's pretty easy, and pretty fast if you actually sit down and work on it... I can't seem to sit down for too long, so it took me about 2 months to finish (working on it 20-30 minutes at a time... I get distracted too easily!)
I didn't have to block it out at all. The weight of the buttons and the yarn itself took care of that. VERY super easy first project!
I used Lion brand yarn: Hometown USA in Kansas City Wheat (its machine washable!!! just take the buttons off... ) *note: this yarn has a lot of little "hairs" on it... it "sheds" very easily. but it's very warm and heavy.

button detail

full cowl laid out on the car. it was too dark in the apartment to take a good picture of the yarn!
