First Knit Project

Hello all!

So, as you know, I have recently learned how to knit.  I have completely falling in love with knitting. This new addiction has doubled my amount of WIPs.  
This post is about the first knit project I actually completed!
I had started projects before this, some of which still are not finished, and I have started/finished projects since completing this shawl.  But, this shawl will always be special to me because it is the first project that I completed!

I used two skeins of Caron Simply Soft in Gray Heather to complete this shawl.  If I knit a second shawl with this pattern, I will use more than two skeins, and make it a bit longer.

I started this shawl at one of my knitting lessons.  My wonderful teacher, Elyce, brought out a book that published this Vine-Stitch Shawl pattern.

I immediately fell in love with the pattern!

After all, I wanted to learn to knit, so that I could make some more lacy items. 
I also want to cable-knit, and learn to knit socks, but that will come later.

Watching this shawl work up was really fun!
I still cannot believe that I know how to knit!

This shawl has its fair share of mistakes, but luckily, they are not too noticeable.

I gifted the shawl to my Grandma, and she was very thankful.
She said, "I can't wait to wear it to church, because I always sit under the window and get cold."
After her first church service wearing this shawl, she made sure to tell me that she received lots of comments, and compliments, about it.  She also made sure to tell people that her granddaughter knit it for her.

Thanks for stopping by!  Come back soon!
