    Hey — that book is written by a friend of mine.

    My first project ever was an afghan. That I never finished (I was 10). So my first finished crochet project was a coaster. My first knit project was a scarf.

    PS you can't ask people to like your FB page in a giveaway — you could lose your facebook page. It's against FB's code of conduct. Rafflecopter really needs to take that off their default options.

    The first thing I ever knitted was a square for a blanket that was to be donated to the local old folks home.
    Mine looked more like crochet and therefore was not included. It took me 20 years to try again and now I occasionally knit and crochet but I prefer to sew.

    Liked your facebook page. This book looks great! I guess the first item I knitted was a long tailed stocking cap. Ribbing at the band, stockinette stitch to the tip, in stripes! Crochet was probably baby booties!

    The first thing I crocheted was a scarf in my school colors. Even though it isn't perfectly made it still comes in handy on cold winter days!

    I believe I crocheted a scarf as my first project. I quickly moved on to making little hooked flowers though. :)

    My first project was a potholder our 4-H leader showed us how to make. It was not quite as square as it should have been. :)

    I don't think I can remember the first thing I ever knit or crocheted. I do remember making a garland for the Christmas tree by making chain after chain after chain stitch. I think i used a whole skein of self striping red white and green acrylic yarn. :)
