A couple of FOs and a WIP by a newbie
Hey everybody! I'm a newby (and a guy at that) to this forum and also to knitting. Had started to learn knitting from KnittingHelp.com and now (3 1/2 weeks after that) I've been visiting a Stitch N Bitch session regularly and am now working through Knitting for Dummies.

Until now, I've finished 2 scarves. One for myself and one for my bf....here they are (the red-green-Christmas is for my bf, while the salt-and-pepper one's mine):



I've got the pattern for the one above from this blog.



As for this scarf, I've used a 5 mm/US 8 circular needles with 100 cm in length. Casting on 220 stitches (or until you find it long enough), I knitted lengthwise in garter stitches.

Used up 4 balls (finges included) of 'Lana Grossa: Bingo Print' #310.

I've a new scarf on the needles right now that I've just started, so I'll wait a bit for it to grow before taking a photo and posting it here.

Thank you! Well, it took me about 5 days of perseverance for each scarf....I hope that I will get faster and better. There are some minor mistakes in both scarves. :D

Five days for a scarf is not so long! All of my work has glitches in it, too. :rollseyes:
