I am a self-taught knitter (from this wonderful site!). My mom sent me this yarn so I decided to make her a scarf with it. It was pretty easy and I know she will love it! :D

The yarn I used is Red Heart Bright & Lofty, super bulky on US 17 needles. I used one skein (4 oz) and had about 6 inches left over.

I love my first scarf! It is one of the few projects that I have kept for myself. Iwear it with great pride as I know your mother will wear hers.

im self taught as well. you should have seen my first scarf though! nothing like yours. mine was wonky with added and dropped stitches galore. it looked more like a sad wavy snake than a scarf.
that scarf will be worn with pride. its lovely.

Thanks so much for all the praise! DH said he liked it, but hearing it from the pro knitters makes me feel even better about it.
And geekgolightly - don't worry, I had plenty of added and dropped stitches, too. I just kept going and it looks better than I thought it would. That's why the picture isn't an up close shot! Ha! :lol:
