Thanks. I think I have the hang of how to tension the yarn. The scarf is now roughly as long as my hand and wrist, which is 6 inches long. That means I am officially 1/10th or 10% done with it!!

Also, I love your screen name, Artlady!!

That's my name to about 33 years worth of customers and clients! I've sold art since 1980! He he. Whenever I call a prospective hostess or client, the kids may answer the phone...and I say, "Hi, this is Dollyce Beeman. Is your mom home?" and they promptly holler for their mom, "Hey, Mom! It's the Artlady!"

So it kinda stuck. I almost gave up giving my name. Even if the husband answers the phone, I say "Hi Mr. Jones. Is Alissa home? This is the Artlady, Dollyce."

Hence...the Artlady it is!

Wow. That's quite a long time, I've only been making art for about half that long.

That really is such a pretty color, and your stitches are so even, I'm jealous! I'm still mastering tension. I have a tendency to pull too tight and then I have to stab my finger to try and work the first few stitches of the row off the needle, haha.

That's going to be such a cute scarf wen you're done. Glad to see another fan of long scarves! Are you going to add any fringe to it or anything after?

Yup, I am going to add tassles when the time comes. I am no where near doing that at the moment though.

Thanks for saying my stitches are so even. I am really working at getting the right tension and I think I've gotten it down.

You're going to be surprised at how quickly it's gonna go by. I remember packing up my stuff after one knit session and wondering when it was I managed to pack three feet onto my needle. Are you going to do the fringe in lilac also, or a different color?

Between you and me, part of the reason I added fringe was so that I wouldn't have to weave in my ends when I was done. :P

You're off to a great start, and it looks very good! I think you'll find it will move along a little faster as get more practice.
