I know that feeling. I remember my first knitting project a simple garter stitch scarf) and how as it got longer and longer the stitches evened out. Even to this day, I will look at my project still on the needles and feel an overwhelming sense of accomplishment. It's a real self-esteem booster to create something by hand, something that you can take pride in. I know your scarf is going to turn out great and before long you'll be knitting all kinds of stuff.
