In my quest to learn all things crafty I've been teaching myself how to knit via books and Youtube. These are my first two completed projects:

This is my absolute first completed project. It's a little Tardis square.




2nd project is a lovely scarf from some specialty yarn. It was quite...trying to work with but I think it really helped me in the end.



My roommate, Brad, working on his modelling skills for me.





Not only am I learning a new skill that I've wanted to try for quite some time but it's also helping me bust my fairly large stash! Although there probably are some more basic knitting skills that I should work on first I'm currently about 7 inches into a cabled scarf. Wish me luck!

Everything looks awesome!

That's how I learned to knit too; Self determined.

the first completed project I made was with specialty yarn; I think that just makes the regular stuff super easy to handle.

Good luck with the cable project: I just started cable stitches and I don't think it's as hard as it looks. Roll Eyes
