My First Scarf (And First Knitting In GEneral)
Here's a shot of what I've done so far on my first ever knitting "adventure."




You can see where the first rows of edges look pretty bad, and then I was told how to "slip a stitch" to make them look better. I also have a couple of mess-ups here and there, but hey it's my first ever knitting!

It's supposed to be 50 inches long and I'm right about 14 now, so only THIRTY-SIX more to go! I also have to learn what to do with the starter thread where I first began to cast-on...

Maury,
Your scarf looks great! I love the colors and the patterns in the yarn. Looks pretty good for a first project--my first project was a poncho. I cast on 40 and was knitting away for days. Then I realized I kept picking up stiches and had over 60! I had to frog the whole thing and start over. :(

By the time you get to the end of the scarf, I bet you'll be able to see improvement in tension as you go. It'll be a great learning experience--you're on your way!!

It's looking great! Pretty colors, too. When you finish, you can just weave that end in with a yarn needle.
