Garter stitch scarf!!!
Well, its about time that I share my current project (or UFO as it were) with all of you. I am knitting a simple garter stitch scarf with lavender acrylic yarn. So far, I have about 4-6 inches of it done. I haven't officially measured it so I am only eyeballing it. Its full length is going to be around 60 inches. Only 54 or so inches left to go!!

Excellent start. It's going to be a great scarf. Projects like this are handy to work on between other things too. It's always nice to have something going that's easy to grab and work a few rows. Thanks for posting the photo.

I love the color; it matches the background in your avatar. I still have my first FO: a garter stitch scarf, too! It seemed like such a struggle at the time, but now I could whip it out w/ my eyes closed and one hand tied behind my back (well, maybe not quite)! Just keep practicing and enjoying it because it gets easier!

It's a wonderful beginning and in a very pretty color. Your garter stitch looks very nice as well. Enjoy knitting the rest of it.

LOL!! Well, lilac (or any light purple) is my favorite color. I guess its because when I was growing up in Ohio, we had these huge lilac bushes in the backyard. Sometimes we would snip off a cluster of blooms and bring it into the kitchen and it would give the whole room a sweet, fragrant smell. I miss those bushes a lot now, ever since we moved away from that house and into NC, way back in '97. Oddly enough, lilac bushes don't grow well in a domestic setting here for some odd reason.

Looks like you're off to a great start.

If you're still fairly new to knitting and you're concerned about making mistakes and correcting them, insert a lifeline at some point so you don't have to start over at the beginning.

And most importantly, have fun knitting this lovely little scarf.

Your stitches are very uniform and look magnificent!

Garter stitch is very beautiful when all knitted up! It's one of my personal favs!
