I have ripped this out 4 times already, and will need to do a fifth. (made a big mistake at right hand side).
I find it interesting enough that this isn't a problem. It's slow-going though, as if I'm knitting 2 layers of fabric in one. It doesn't grow fast.
it sure is thick!
I'm also practicing with acrylic yarn, but will buy some good yarn to make a cozy scarf. Cheap yarn 'pills' too quickly, as you can see in pic.
It's still cold here, and I'm tired of having a cold neck.
After my heart surgery, 2 months ago, I've been building up a walking schedule every day. I'm up to 40 mins at a time, but some days I come home shivering.
