Finished my practice scarf! Well, to be honest, I just have the ends of the yarn to weave in. I grabbed a skein of LB Homespun and some size 13 needles and just did this in garter stitch. The beginning is a bit wide, I was trying too hard to knit loosely. But then it kind of evened out.
that looks fantastic, i love the yarn colour(s) very interesting to look at. I had the same problem with my first scarf from trying to knit loosly, luckily it worked out just like your, and you can't even tell it wasn't supposed to be wider.
I hate to tell you this, horve, but that's not a "practice" scarf -- it's a real scarf! A nice one too! Congratulations!
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
