I'm interested in this too. I'm wanting to try making a singlet for my son to wear this summer, and I'm nervous to try...the pattern looks SO complicated! But it's rated as really easy on Ravelry.

Re: what was your 1st real knitting project?

The very first thing I EVER made was some doll longies. It involved DPNs for the legs. But I made my LO some longies with the Sheepy Pants pattern for my first "real" project. They were good, sellable on FSOT even Although they were like tights on him, so I had to stretch the heck out of them when they blocked, and then they were too short! LOL

I say make what you desire, you will learn tons along the way and be inspired to finish since it will be something you really want.

Good luck!
