My First Knitted Garment

How weird is this? Through blogroll links, I found myself on WoolGirl's site looking at yarns and patterns and...

I found the elusive pattern for the very first scarf I ever knit! How weird is that! The only difference between my first attempt and the pattern is that this pattern shows beads on the ends. We didn't do that part.

It's been—erk—12 years since that first garment, and I just now rediscovered the pattern. Since it's been hard for me to describe it accurately, I'll just let WoolGirl's site do it for me. Here's a photo from her site:

I'm tempted to dig out my pattern and some appropriate yarn and make another. The original is around here somewhere...

My "first" was a garter stitch blog. Then I made ill fitting two-needle mittens. Then I made an ugly acrylic sweater. Then I gave up knitting for fifteen years. It was for the best...I needed to rest and learn a bit more about things like "fit" and "fiber."

And I am a sloooow learner...
