I just taught myself to knit this summer. So far, I've made one thing, but it's one thing I'm very proud of! It's a "sock" for an ipod. The button is the wrong size, but it's the only one I have for now.
Great job with the ipod "sock", looks like a tricky pattern for your first project! When I started knitting I would always tend to knit simple projects - scarves are perfect practice for beginners :)
Looking for photos of what I've knit over the past few years. This is the sweater that got me to pick up the needles after years of them being stored away. No pattern so I did a lot of ripping out along the way but got it done in time for Christmas for my daughter! Knit the collar high and folded it over so it would hug her neck and keep her warm when it was zipped up. She's in Maine and I remember how cold your neck gets on those chilly days!
The next year my daughter asked to make my son-in-law a Christmas stocking. My grandmother knit my children stockings years ago and she wanted a knit stocking for Matt to hang with hers. With all the knitting I've done over the years I had never tackled socks but I managed and since he's a HUGE Red Sox fan I decided to decorate it with a fitting "theme" Her only complaint was that Matt's stocking is bigger than hers!
Two years ago I decided to knit an afghan as a Christmas gift for my daughter. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of it but I've got one of the afghan I made for my DH last month I noticed that every time we got together at my daughter's house, my son would hog her afghan so I made him his own for Christmas this year! Not really a "manly" gift but I knit it up in a really pretty deep blue and he loved it. So...Rick likes it too and asks when I'm going to make him one? LOL Grabbed some more yarn on sale and finished one for him - a late Christmas gift This pattern is really easy and using bulky yarn it knits up quickly!

Lovely projects y'all. I'm just a once in awhile knitter but did finish a pair of mittens last week and have a hat started this week. These are both for me unfortunately I didn't have the correct size needles for the mittens so they are one size too large for me. Good news is my best friend can wear them so I have her birthday gift already made.
