1  My first non-scarf project! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Cassiby on: February 07, 2008 10:44:38 AM
Well, I've been knitting for just about over a year, and have so far stuck to scarves for my own sanity. But this Christmas I set out to knit my cousin a sweater! (Though I should say this summer, because taht's when I started) I used Wendy Bernard's Drive Thru pattern, and Red Heart worsted weight yarn though I can't remeber the exact colours...


I'm pretty pelased with myself, though I had to frog my first try after connecting it in the round crooked and not realising until a couple inches in. This was knit from the bottom up all on circular needles. It also won me a bet! MY mom swore I couldn't do the entire thing on circular needles, (Advocate of double-points that she is) but I managed it!

2  Yay!! First Completed Scarf! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Cassiby on: October 05, 2006 11:30:24 PM
So, this is the first finished project I've ever knit! I'm very proud of myself!! It was knit with Ply in The Sky's Damzel in Distress yarn, that has tulle and sparkles spun righty in it and a black Wal-Mart boucle wool of some sort...I knit it up on Size 17 needles, and it took me about two nights. It turned out to be a loooong, without fringe, about 2.5 meters...I thinks that's about 8.2 feet...Anyway, here are some pics!!!

Here it is on my carpet, a little hard to see...

A bit better...

ANd here's the fringe!!!!!

Whatcha think?? I'm in love with it, it's not as soft, as say, cashmere, but it's warm and comfy and long...so it works for me!!...Sorry about the links...
