Here’s a look back at my very first knitting project completed circa 2002. Did I choose a nice simple scarf? Of course not. I decided to make my boyfriend an afghan.
Yes, it is a trapezoid. I was yarning over and had utterly no clue what was happening.
Notice the holes, the confusion of right side and wrong side, and the loose ends I didn’t know how to weave in.
Is this what I have to look forward to as I take on new projects? Perhaps… But I have to admit, that blanket is seriously cozy. And my now husband still keeps it folded in the closet to bring out on “sick days.”
There is something about a handmade gift. No matter what the skill level of the giver.
