Apparently my knitting attempts weren't that hopeless... I made a cowl scarf!!!
I used this tutorial from Knit and Bake as the "Super Easy Beginner Knitting Cowl " title sounded right up my alley (thanks by the way, miss Knit and Bake!).
Of course, my knitting wasn't that regular, so I had to block it (aka pin it in place, put a kitchen towel on top and steam the heck out of it) :
But it turned out great, and I'm very proud of it:)
I also knitted one (in the round!) for my mom, but forgot to take a picture before giving it to her...
