Get ready to laugh, lades. My first knit show and tell

I haven't been knitting very long so these aren't that great. I see so many posts on here of perfect works so I thought on behalf of the newby non-posting closet knitters, I would share what I call my

LEARNING HAT
I had an idea in my head of what this would look like when I started this for my husband. However, having never knitted before and deciding to make my "own pattern" made for a different outcome than anticipated. I only have a size 10 needles and my dh picked out the fabric. I'm not sure if you can really appreciate how rediculous this turned out until you see it on my head looking really dumb.

The only thing about the hat that I am proud of is that I made my own motif pattern of a Land Rover because my dh is into them and that turned out really cool.

Here is the kicker....on my head. I look terrible but just ignore me.....I think I made the hat look worse if that is possible.


I also made a scarf for my dd who loves it!!


And a bottle holder with my first ball of real wool yarn. I haven't felted it yet and am a bit scared to. I didn't drop a single stitch like I did with the hat and the scarf. I tried and tried to fix my dropped stitches but I just couldn't so I just went on.




Thanks for looking and laughing! Maybe next time I'll follow a pattern and my dh will wear the hat!!!!!

That is awesome it's definitely a learning process but I'd say you're doing well! I love the action pic of the hat especially; that gave me a good chuckle . You'll be surprised how drastically your knitting improves with each project.

Keep posting mama!

I don't knit but to me it looks like you have a natural instinct for it and practice will make perfect! Good work mama!
