my first knitted thing ever...

it took three books and several unsuccessful attempts to figure out how to cast on, and knit one row... the excitement was deflated by the fact that i couldn't knit row #2... no clickety click of the needles... i don't remember how i managed to do it, but soon i was knitting long rows of 28 stitches using soft green yarn... realizing that a scarf would take forever to make, i headed to walmart and bought some fat ol' needles- size 10 and 13.... and then some fat, itchy yarn that would have made the most uncomfortable scarf...

after several rows that took 15min each to knit, i decided to quickly learn to purl stitch, bind off, and pc together my very first unknown project... miraculously, once all together, it so happened to be a perfect fit for my digital camera... so i add a button, a loop, some eyes and a mouth, and oila! a knitted camera holding thing...

although i knit too tightly, leaving me wonder how the elderly manage to knit many-a-outfits, i am nonetheless proud of this creation i've concocted!
