So after picking up crochet in the early part of last year, I decided to get my mum to teach me how to knit.  I haven't got pictures of my first project, really simple fingerless gloves, as they went in a Christmas shoebox.

My second project was this scarf:

It's Kat Mcab's Kwoosh Shawlette; http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/kwoosh-shawlette-scarf and I used this yarn http://www.ethniccrafts.co.uk/store/p113143-recycled-sari-yarn/recycled-sari-silk-yarn--100-gm.cfm which is recycled sari silk.  I found it quite hard to work with at the beginning but it's very pretty so I persevered.  The pattern was a good one for a beginner.  The picture below shows the shape of it, I did go a bit wonky but you wouldn't notice if you didn't know to look for it.

I also made Jen Geigley's GAP-tastic Cowl (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/gap-tastic-cowl) in Rico Creative Galaxy Chunky - I love the colours of this yarn.

And look!  I made owl wrist warmers!

The pattern's from the magazine 'Mollie Makes'.  I was really pleased with how this one came out.  Unfortunately, I managed to make 2 exactly the same  Embarrassed.  When I frogged down to the thumb hole I picked up the stitched a bit wrong and have managed to make the second glove a bit wonky.

Oh well, I'm still really chuffed with the owls.

Looks like you have passed the basics, which I can't conquer. I love the mitts.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!
