My first knitting project

I just finished my first knitting project! I am so excited!!!

It is a little uneven since I was trying both english and continental knitting. As of now I think I like continental better (maybe because I learned crochet before, when I was younger?).

Anyway, to all my friends who are knitting I would love to see what you've been making.

I'm so excited!!!
