Today I will do my gauge. I have done quite a bit of knitting in my time and I have NEVER done a gauge, so this will be interesting. I will learn if I am a tight kintter, loose knitter or straight shooter.
When I bought my sewing machine last winter, the first thing I sewed on it was a knitting needle holder. I just made it out of my head. No pattern, no fussiness. Just a pair of sissors and the machine. I used some fabric I had in my stash (actually I did not know the word stash, when speaking sewing, back then) and it turned out okay~to~ fair. No work of art by any means, but it does the trick of holding my needles.

I had not sewn in over 20 years when I started this and you can sure tell.
I've come a long way baby!
What was the first thing you ever sewed? And I am curious as to how many sewers are knitters out there? Or knitters are sewers? My talent to knit is about the same as it is to sew. I am more than a beginner, but not an expert by any means. Should I concentrate on just one of these and become better and then do the same for the other or just wing it as I have to this point and risk never becoming an expert at either.
