Do you remember your first knitting project?This was mine-the pattern was in SEVENTEEN magazine's knitting edition-I could not wait to make this-I was so hip,so neat,so whatever-until my mother WASHED and FELTED it !!! I got a lot of wear from it before she did the damage-and did the guys ever like it-well,yes they did-it would now fit a 9 yr old without breasts-but a 16 yr old-I don't think so...I did have the foresight to save my work-isn't that the wonderful thing about knitting projects-they can be worn almost forever...
This is kept safely in my cedar chest-taken out for remember whens...

I can't believe it!! This was MY first knitting project also! I'm just floored!!!!!!
Sorry for all the excess punctuation..but I was so shocked. I always tell people when I teach that this was my first project. Unfortunately, I no longer have it. Somewhere there is a photo of me in it on the beach, have to look for it.
I found your blog by following the link on Ravelry..I was looking a projects of people in the Yarns Unlimited group. I'm Cathy who works at the shop, I'm sure that I know you. Anyway, thanks for the trip down memory lane.
