Project #1... check!

My little knitting project turned out to be a samurai needle caddy. It was a rectangle about five inches wide by three inches deep, all garter stitch as befits a newbie project. Slide your needles into the weave and hang it on the wall horizontally. Samurai knitting needles.

Oddly enough, it turns out that gauge depends almost entirely on the needle size. And those Silvalume™ needles are useless¹ — they slide out of knitting loops like a maglev rail gun. Bamboo works fine.

¹De gustibus non disputandum est. YMMV.
