OK, somebody suggested a while ago (I’d give credit, but I have a notoriously bad memory and can’t remember who it was :oops: ) that we start a thread showcasing our first projects. Since I just happened to find mine today, I figured I’d go first. Please join in!!
My first projects were slippers. I couldn’t find any patterns that I really loved (this was before I saw the FT clogs - those are awesome!!) so I made up some of my own. Clockwise, a slipper knitted flat and then seamed at the toe and up the front in garter stitch, another one done the same way in a really pretty raspberry boucle that I love, my very first try at a Mary Jane style slipper done with some yarn left over from a blanket that I crocheted for DH a few years ago, and a badly executed (my increases were way off because I neglected to read the pattern correctly)version of the Pocketbook Slipper, which is what I ended up making almost everyone (scroll down to see what it looks like on - not so bad, really). In the background you can see my practice swatch of basketweave…
All of these were done in the first week I learned how to knit. I did a TON of stuff that first month, but almost all of it was given away for Xmas.
OK, everyone, let’s see em! Warts and all!
