This was a little extra gift for Carol as part of a Hooked on Exchanges exchange - the theme was 'By The Sea' and I thought the colours and texture were quite summery and seaside-y!
The first knitting I ever did - aged 4 - was making a garter stitch dishcloth. It was probably as holey as the one above, but I don't think the holes were deliberate! I was very proud of myself though :o) I'm so grateful I had a mum who taught me to knit, sew and embroider. She also encouraged my passion for books ... but sorry ma, I can't quite get so enthused about housekeeping or genealogy ;o)
Knitters out there - who taught you? How old were you?
