My first project was an attempted scarf. I was eight. I soon gave up, knitted half a scarf, sewed it in half, knitted a 'handle', and sewed that on.
Then i gave it to my mother for Mothers day. And she loved it. She's used it for her glasses and spare pens, even one of those Tupperware bottles.
I completely winged it . I had no idea what mattress stitch was, so i did overcast. My handle was a strip of st st that i had intended and hoped would curl up on itself.
Looking back on first project itself is an embarrassment. But the fun i had making it....
And my mother did recently request that i make more of them for her to use. :yay:
