I'm so happy and so proud of myself! I finished my first knitting project today! :yay: Nothing fancy, just a garter stitch scarf that I started in the knitting class last Sunday but pretty darn good for a first timer I think. :) :woot:

Picture is here if you're interested in peeking.


Gonna start making some neat state "embossed" wash cloths that I saw to learn the knit/purl combo now.

Great job:yay: I know it feels rewarding to know you make it. My first scarf took over a year to finish, not complicated just turned warm and I wasn't interested in knitting. Your timeline was much better than mine!!

Congrats! That is a nice scarf. It is such a wonderful feeling when you manage to make something useful out of a ball of yarn and some pointy sticks. Keep up the good work!
