You're scarf is very even and looks great!

When I am feeling down, I go back and look at my first scarf and have a good laugh. It doesn't look anything like yours. I could tell a fib and say the pattern I used called for it to be "wavy", but I just keep it hidden in the closet.

It loosk great! I love the yarn, it gives your scarf a zig zag shade...

What I do with the yarn left from casting on is use it as a fringe... here is a video that teaches you how to do it... Elongated Stitch Scarf the fringe is at the very end of the first video for this scarf.

It does look great!

I "cheated" on my first project. I used the eyelash thread so it covered over and mistakes I made with sheer fuzziness!

Very nice, indeed! I am also dying to know what yarn you have used for your scarf. My son would *love* it, his favorite two colors are blue and green.

I see you have your yarn in a container, too. Very smart!

You're off and running with a beautiful first project!! Are you planning to put fringe on? If so, here's my fringe tip:

- Cut fringe for the bottom before you finish the scarf and count how many pieces you used (e.g., 3 strands * 15 knots = 45 strands total).
- Then cut the same number of strands for the other end of the scarf and set them aside until you're finished with the scarf.
- Doing this ahead of time helps you use all the yarn you have without worry of running short!

Good luck and keep on knitting!

I don't know what kind of yarn it is this project is one of those "Cup of Yarn" things you may have seen in stores. It doesn't give any details at all.

However, my wife and I DID buy some goodies for our next projects, so once we start those, I'll finally be able to give all the nitty-gritty like I'm supposed to!

And yes, I'll be fringing this scarf, so thanks for the tip (even though I don't understand it yet).
