This was my first completed project. I taught myself to knit with some online videos and some one-on-one instruction with a friend for about 15 minutes. I always thought that it would be too complicated to actually do!
I knit this on size 9 needles with Lion Brand Homespun yarn and just used the garter stitch the whole way. I don't remember the exact color and I've already tossed the label. I don't know that I would use the yarn again. It turns out beautiful, but it split really easy. Definitely wasn't the smartest choice in first yarns, but at the time I was just going for "pretty".
