Finally! After complaining in yesterday's post, the sun finally came out this morning allowing me to snap some pics of my very first ever knitting project – my snuggly new snood! As you all know, it started with Karen, spread around the blogsphere and wrapped me up in its whirlwind!
It's made following free Guardian pattern and using 12mm needles (which I call comedy needles as I looked like a fool trying to use them at the beginning) and Sirdar Indie in shade 156. It's such a soft and cosy yarn! Just a heads up as the pattern calls for 200g of wool, but I only needed to use 100g...so go figure...
Close up of my crazy hippie yarn - not at all my usual style, but I like it nonetheless!

As a beginner, I also found KnittingHelp.com invaluable – thank you Mela for sharing this link, as I'd never heard of it before!
Overall, I'm delighted with my first knitted item! It's not perfect by any means, but I'm planning more in solid colours and you know what they say about practise eh!?!
