My first crochet was a bag that I put a book in whenever I go out ! My first knitting was just long straps or this REALLY ugly bee (I didn’t know how to crochet back then​:cry:)

I don’t even remember my first crochet, it would have been at least 25yrs ago… But when I restarted again back in 2011, my projects weren’t great and definitely not as good as now…
However my first knit project in 2012 was a tablet sleeve using scrap yarn… I knit a flat piece of stockinette with a small garter section at the end, then folded in half and sewed along the 2 stockinette sides, leaving the garter section open to allow the tablet to go in the pouch… I wasn’t impressed with it, but was told it was good, especially for a first time… I think having crochet knowledge before allowed me to understand tension and all that
I’ll see if I can find a pic (nope can’t find one :woman_shrugging:t3:)

Oh honey… My 10 year old self thought that making a full sized blanket for my first project was the best idea in the world.
Coming back to it years later, I realized I could literally stick my fingers, and in some places, my entire arm though the wholes… I also didn’t know how to do a turning chain, so it was soooo loose is the middle, and soooo tight on the edges.
Yeah… It was a disaster.

(Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of the thing, because I un-did it and made it something new)

It was a tiny round angry octopus. I took the hook that didn’t match the yarn :sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile: it was rather cute tho, bright pink. Didn’t have appropriate eyes for him so I used some beads lol… it was kinda off looking but I love this octopus and sometimes come across it in my plush stash

Trust me, you weren’t the only one with a horrible project. My frist project…I don’t even know how to describe it. I was trying to just practice and didn’t really have anything in mind to make but I didn’t know how to turn my project around and start another row so I just went around the other side and it started curling lol. I don’t even know if that could count for a first project but I made a hat after that and I remember being SOOOOOO proud of it that I literally wore it everyday. I still have so I’ll post of pic of it too.
