So, let me begin with #1

My very first project was a scarf, but it turned out to be the size of a placement. Consequently, I gave it to one of the kitties to sleep on. It had yarnovers all over it. It was made of black acrylic.  It was covered in cat hair even before I gave it to the kitties.  The edges weren’t straight because I added and decreased randomly without knowing it. I ended up throwing it away a few years later. No regrets. I was very proud. It was the start of something great!
