    Default New here, and showing off! (xp)

    I am a waaaaaaay begginer knitter. i taught myself about a week ago using knittinghelp.com.

    I have since knit 2 hats. This is my first one:


    you can't see all the holes, but there's at least 7 throughout from dropped stiches


    and here's my post I made on my bb about my NEWEST hat!!!

    I am super proud of myself! We are going to see Horton Hears a Who tommorow and I'm going to attempt to have Noah wear the hat with his Thing 1 shirt, but if not, his cousin will wear it. And I will make Noah a different on with the double point needles and perhaps a stinking chin strap! (that kid refuses to wear hats!)





    and in the intrest of full disclosure...my join (i think that's what it is called)
    I've never switched colors before and don't think I did the best job. But I'll put that part toward the back

    Thanks so much Wren!

    Here's a pic of Noah (shortly) wearing the hat:

    awww :blush: yep only my first! It's just straight knitting, I'm dreading trying out any kind of pattern, LOL. I think I might try a small blanket next (well after I finish the one other hat I need to knit).

    I'd say go for it! Im sure if you find a beginner pattern you'll rock it!
    Please update with pics when you finish another, we love seeing finished projects!

    ok...
    I haven't been knitting too long (a few months maybe)...I've made ATLEAST 10 hats and I have NEVER tried stripes yet. I need to. Wow. I'm shocked.

    I can't wait to see more of your finished products!

    Here's a tip I found for the stripes. Sometimes apparently you can get a "stair step" type pattern when you change colors. But if you grab the stich below and put it on the left needle and knit those two stiches together with the new color, you avoid the stair step look. Thought that was pretty neat

    Great job! Did you try knitting in the round on double-point needles, first? If so, you are quite the adventurous-type. Most new knitters start out knitting scarfs (or squares if you were too impatient like me).
