My first 'Beanie' project

Well, I have taken the plunge and after searching through the forums I have decided to try my hand at a very basic Beanie.

I found the 'Magic Loop' method mentioned on this site, did a little research on You Tube and got cracking. I had an absolute nightmare getting started but once I completed a few rows it has become less of a labour.

I am under no illusion that this will be perfect and I have already 3/4 completed and unpicked! I have made a decsion to finish it regardless of any mess ups and hope some of you guys can help me find solutions for fixing any problems :-)

Ginnie, my Boxer, finds the whole thing facinating and it will not suprise me if a few token Boxer hairs have found there way into the knit.

Anyway, I shall post the completed article - hopefully, tomorrow.

Great start, looking forward to seeing the finished beanie.

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.
