Day 5: How long did it take from the time your learned how to knit, to finish your first project?

About 2 months. Probably about two weeks to learn to identify when I’m dropping stitches, another two to learn how I keep adding stitches, although there are no holes in my work (i.e.- I’m not doing accidental yarnovers), and then a month to complete a garter stitch scarf. That seems like an incredibly long time for a garter scarf to me now (especially since I can complete one in 2-3 days now), but that was a SERIOUS accomplishment to me back then.
