Although I’m progressing in baby-steps I am really proud to share my first FO!
This is actually an upcoming Ribblr pattern that will be released soon
I made it for a new born baby and while it’s definitely not perfect, I’m sure it’ll keep him warm
I’d love to know - what was yours first FO and when was it? How long did it take you to complete it?
My very first project was one of those double-thick potholders that kind of folds up diagonally - the one that everyone’s grandmother made.
Oh that sounds super cool! Picture?
Oh, I gave it to my grandma or my mom as a thank you for teaching me.
However, it is basically this design here: https://www.bevscountrycottage.com/kitchen-potholders.html
Oh that is so kind I’m sure they loved it.
Yes, my first FO was a sweater, long sleeved, that I knit at age 8 along with my best friend. Mom taught us both. No pictures, that was more than 60 years ago! But it was gray.
I started an afghan in junior high school. It seemed to take forever. But, years later when I first learned to read patterns, I made a hat for my grandson while we watched him for a couple hours. That one fills my heart just thinking about it. The hat was 8 years ago, the blanket was in 1976 ish.
That’s incredible! sounds like a lot of fun.
That is awesome! Do you have pictures of it?
Unfortunately no. But maybe I can ‘paint’ you one. The blanket was a yellow, green and white ripple, each color being 2 or 3 inches. Fit a queen or king size bed when I was finished. The hat was orange. Asher sat on papa’s lap and watched me. I made a few rounds and tried it on him, until I got it long enough to cover his ears. Then I made a little bill off the front. When I finished I put it on him and he immediately reached to take it off, But, he saw himself in the mirror and did a quick double take. Pretty sure he liked it, He was only 6 months old at the time.
That is so cool Thank you for sharing!
What does FO stand for? .IF it is my first crochet project it was two years ago and I made a blanket for my hubby. Have made many more since then. I fall in love with crocheting and kept self teaching me and my crochet journey begun.
Thank you. I am not good at short cuts…im glad you like my first ever blanket…
Way to go Saar! I actually don’t remember my first FO; I learned when I was six - way too long ago to remember - lol!
That’s amazing! and thanks
