Scarf & slouch hat


I'm a novice knitter but have done a few scarves. This is my latest scarf & my first hat attempt to go with it. It's a slouch hat as they suit my head shape the best.

I'm now doing my 1st cardigan so hope it fits me when it's done!

Sorry pic not showing. Opened a Flickr account using Firefox but for some reason not uploading. Will have to try again later.

I've done a few scarves over the last 12 months as they don't need sewing together but this is the latest one. I'm pretty clueless with regards to sewing but I had a go at doing a hat & then joined a knitting group & a lady there showed me mattress stitch which I'd seen in a book. Since I've got some support from the group I decided to have a go at a cardigan so I've got a bit of help if I get stuck! I just hope if fits when I've done it. I'm currently wondering how generous to be with the sleeves as the ones in the pattern might be a little short on me. I'd rather be a bit generous than too short though.

Those are really nice and don't look like novice work at all! I love the color. I really like slouchy hats, but I'm closer to 60 than 50, and my teenagers and DH tease me if I wear them, "What are you, some aging hippie?" Doesn't stop me, though, because I look even dumber in beanies

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.
