Drum roll please

yippy yippy YIPPY. I have finished the scarf. It is pretty simple, just a box pattern with seed stitch at the beginning/end. Looking at the pattern picture I now realize there is a seed stitch around the entire thing but mine didn't turn out that way. Once I figured out how to tell a knit from a purl I stopped looking at the pattern and just alternated, therefore no seed on the sides. I will also use advice I had seen previously seen and switch to a larger size needle for bind off. It isn't perfect (you can even see a little hole in the picture) but I think it is pretty good for my very first knitting project. It took forever but I think more knitted scarves/projects are to come. I figure if I start now I might have something done in time to give as a Christmas gift.

Pattern from yarnmarket.com--camel unisex scarf
Yarn--armytage, color very grape (wool)

same problem every morning--pioneer woman has a brand new post. regina has nada. sigh..

Regina said...

Pioneer woman has older children. She doesn't have to deal with crapped in pull-ups first thing in the morning. Her time zone is also an hour ahead of mine.

Regina said...

oh yeah, you are also an hour ahead of me...perhaps you should try checking a little LATER in the AM.

The Wades said...

maybe you should auto post in morn so that no matter what time zone a person resides, they will not be tortured by reruns. i'm just saying.
