My First Scarf
Please excuse wobbly edges, they are actually straight, but as you all know, stockinette stitch rolls terribly. I plan on backing it with fleece, as my yarn is acrylic, and that can get uncomfortable when you are sweaty. And I always get sweaty, personally, when wearing a scarf.

Though this is not finished, I am already bored with stockinette stitch -- and the fact that it will be a scarf, and I've already made uncountable numbers of crochet scarves. Thus, I will be doing http://margarethubertoriginals.com/newpage1.htm this.

Though I am confused a little with the pattern, but. I will work it, and it will likely work itself out clearly.

And hopefully it will take less time than this scarf, which will need to be 4-5 ft before I give it to it's child. (a 3-foot tall girl who will wrap it around her neck 5 times and want it to dangle like mine do. )

The colors are beautiful! Stockinette can get boring, just race yourself to the next color change. :rofling: Don't worry about the edges--this'll be the last time it's laid flat.

It took far too much effort to get it laid flat in the first place! ^^ and sadly, the varigated, neice-requested yarn leaves little room for the color changing, but I figure if I work back and forth between the neice's present and the nephew's present, I will have fewer wip's while still maintaining some semblance of inspiration.

Switching between projects is the only way to get through the boring ones.

That yarn is awsome, yes? I haven't made much from it, but I did make a little cell phone holder a few months back (first thing I ever made!). It's soooo rainbowy. Looks different with a bigger pattern as well. I can't wait to see everything when you're finished.

I haven't made a scarf yet. I started to make one and too got bored with the stitches. I made a hat the other day and now DH wants a scarf to match. Maybe I will give it another try. I think I gave up because I casted on way too many stitches and it was taking forever.

I like the way the yarn stripes. Keep up the good work

That looks like the Cup of Yarn that I'm doing, though I went with a different color.

That looks just like a yarn I used many years ago to crochet a sweater for my daughter...Red Heart "Bikini"...I think. (I can't remember now ). But the colors are great for a girl. Anyway, it's looking nice!
