Shorties. Or before that, a drop-knit scarf with silk if you count that.

Not perfect, but functional and I was so proud of them! And did use them plenty even though they were SW.

Re: what was your 1st real knitting project?

I've decided on the Be Loving hat to start b/c it has ribbing & to do longies that is a skill I'll need. going to get some stitch markers tomorrow & I'll be casting on (cast on 2x w/o stitch markers & kept losing my place & had to rip out ).

Re: what was your 1st real knitting project?

I just posted in the show and tell but I made a washcloth, a scarf and then tackled Sheepy Pants longies to go with a Ridinghood sweater I had made for DD (I didn't make it). I messed up the gusset but you can't tell it. I think the rise is a little too big also but it's OK.

Shorties were my first project too, only a few little mistakes. =) You can do it!

it looks cute on her, but up close it's hideous... I purled rows I was supposed to knit and had some yo holes and forgot to change colors places...

Be Loving will be a great choice! I like to put stitch markers every 10 st when I cast on because I get lost so easy... helps to make sure my ribbing is correct too...

Good luck!
I think this is the best advice! I've only ever made 3 things (2 hats and longies). And I was excited about each of them, which made me keep going when I was frustrated.

I think this is a great place to start. I started with a plain roll brim hat, then did Dakine's Be Controlled hat - it was also great practice for longies because it had i-cord, kitchener stitch and seed stitch. Good luck!

It really looks amazing for a first project in your pics - very cute!

Re: what was your 1st real knitting project?

My first knit was a pair of mittens. It was long before I'd heard of Ravelry and unfortunately my MIL lost them while taking my DD though Walmart. I was so sad...they came out so cute...even if they were knitted with nasty Lion Brand Babyspun. It was the Family of Mittens pattern from Lion Brand.
