30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 1

I saw Meggiewes 30 Day Knitting Challenge and decided that I would participate as I have been neglecting my blog for far too long and it would give me the kickstart I need!

So, here I am on Day 1…

Day 1: What was your first finished project?

My first finished project was a simple garter stitch chunky scarf follow a pattern by the brilliant Aneeta Patel in her book Knitty Gritty: Knitting for the Absolute Beginner.

I made it too wide and so it wasn’t quite long enough, but it taught me a lot about tension and the basic knit stitch.  Although it slightly pains me to look at this now, I am still proud of what I achieved, especially being left-handed and finding it hard to get the dexterity to wrap the yarn with my right hand…

Thankfully I’ve moved onwards and upwards!
