My First Completed Project: A Scarf!
I have finally finished my very first project! I attached my finished project as well as a before and after of how far I've come with my knitting. Any suggestions on what I should try to make next??

Very nice! And that's some marked improvement there. You should be proud of how far you've come.

As far as what's next, I say find something that interests you and that will KEEP you interested. Then find an easy pattern for it that you like and dive in.

It looks great and I love that color! Isn't it fun to see how far you've come?

It's very nice and even knitting! Ideas on what to knit next? A cowl. A hat. Slippers.

Seamed Fingerless Gloves.

Great job and welcome to the knitters ranks! A very nice start.

I would suggest a simple hat as a next project. It gives you a chance to learn how to do ribbing (knit one, purl one) and knit in a round. The same knit stich in a round will make a different texture. Then if you feel adventurous, you can learn decreases to shape the top (which is really just knitting two stitches together) or knit straight and just tie up the top. The best thing you can make anything from a chic slouchy to a wacky hat with a huge pom-pom

Well, since the rest of us saw it I'd say it's something with your browser or computer.
