What was the first thing you knitted?

18 years ago

I learned to knit from my grandmother who must have had the patience of Job with a 9 yr old little girl.The first thing that I knit was a hat for my favorite doll.My one and only sibling,a darling baby brother came along when I was eleven and i had progressed far enough to knit sweater,bonnet and booties for him.By the age of thirteen I had enough confidance to tackle a coat sweater with reindeer on the back.It was my first hobby and even though sometimes I may go for long periods without knitting,I always go back to it.I find it so relaxing.

So do you remember your first project?
