Irish Hiking Wristwarmers from http://wineandneedles.blogspot.com/2004/12/wrist-warmer-pattern.html
I used cheap-o Red Heart.

I can't recall the name of this yarn, but this is a scarf for my little sister for Christmas. I'm afraid she won't like it, though...she's the biggest tomboy I know. It's just made with simple st st.

This was actually the very FIRST knitting project I ever started....but I just got around to finishing it after it had been set aside for so long. It's a scarf for myself made from Simply Soft in black. It's quite  a wide scarf, but it keeps me warm. It's just simple garter stitch all over.

I'm quite proud of this one (can you tell? haha). It was my first dpn project, and I love it! It was a hat made for my boyfriend, but it's short on his head. As you can see, it fits me just fine Smiley It's also made of cheap-o Red Heart...haha. The pattern was free http://droppedstitches.blogspot.com/2004/11/two-movie-easy-knit-hat-pattern.html  It certainly took me longer than two movies, though  Huh

These were my first pair of mittens. I made them for myself and I JUST missed the first snow. I was on the middle of my second mitten! Oh well, my hands freeze in the rush-hour traffic on my way to work, so I'm still glad I made these. It was a really really easy and quick pattern. It's on straight-needles. I have the pattern if anyone wants it. A girl on myspace sent it to me Smiley Red Heart, again. I'm cheap :-p

Very nice stuff!  And there's nothing wrong with cheap yarn - it washes well and doesn't wear out.   I really like your hat.  The decreases look perfect. 
Well done on everything!

I like the hat. I always have trouble deciding on the width and coulours and repetition of stripes. It looks great. And *pssst* I went through a phase of fibre-snobbery, but sometimes it's surprising how nice acrylics are.

Great mittens!
I love mittens.   Grin

I'll add another pattern to this thread too for anybody who wants mitten patterns.. this pair took me about 4 hours to knit both mittens.  Smiley  2 needles as well, always a winner with DPN-phobics like myself.

Oooh awesome job on it all!! I just had to share that I also made my first hat using that pattern and I used the exact same colors!! Hahahaha... very weird. I also had to make it twice cause my first hat came out more like a beret following the exact pattern Grin

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.
