I started knitting a blanket for my soon to be step-son's 5th birthday. This was the first time I'd ever really knit anything (except for a couple squares years, and years ago with my mom and great aunt!). I'm very happy with the way it turned out! I added a crocheted edge to give it a more finished look.

Below that is the ripple afghan I started crocheting immediately after I finished the blue afghan. Again, this was the first crochet project I've attempted. I'm "hooked", **pun intended :-)** I may be going back to add tassled fringe to the end points *depending on how much yarn I have left*.

My next project, starting tomorrow, is a fancy, furry scarf for my brother's fiancee'.

FIRST TWO PROJECTS?!

A fuzzy fun fur scarf is usually a classic first project, afghans are more like.. the billioneth.. Wink

Well done!  Nice work.  Cheesy

I love the blue blanket!  Definitely not your typical first project!

Holy crap! That bottom one looks just like the one my great grandmother crocheted. Except in different colors. Wow.

I think that's a mandatory thing.  Everyone must have a blanket in that Old Shale-is (or similar) pattern that was made by a grandmother, great aunt, or other elderly relative.  My parents have one that my great grandma made, but it's not nearly as cute (it's made of various shades of vomit.)


Very nice blankets.  I love the blue one!  Were those squares seamed together at the end, or did you do it as one piece?

Wow quite the first project!  I started with a garter scarf, still trying to work up to a sweater.  I'm quite impressed.  Have fun with that scarf, it should be a piece of cake after this!

I sewed all the squares together at the end. All 96 of them!
