So I guess this isn't technically the first thing I have finished, but it *is* the first thing I have finished and not immediately gone *blegh.*

It is a scarf made out of Paton SWS (natural earth color), four skeins, garter stitch all the way through. It is about 5 and a half feet long, and 43 stitches wide, though I think it would have been better if I had cast on about 35 stitches and knitted it out longer.

Super plain, nothing fancy, but I am very hapy with it :happydance: It was supposed to be a Christmas scarf for someone, and I guess it still can be if I take the long view of things~ Or I may keep it for whenever I get back to somewhere when it actually gets cold, it feels great.

Very nice! :cheering:

It's always interesting to see how the yarns knit up! This turned out beautiful.
