Can I join in?? I've just started one tonight. The first 3 rows are loop stitches and it's 10 stitches wide, doing the body of it in Moss stitch and will end the last three rows with the loop stitch. It's on size 11 needles. The yarn is virgin handspun wool in an olive green color that a friend gave to me. It's about 8"s sofar. Going to knit til it's 65"s.

OK, so I am about 2/3 of the way finished with my 70" scarf, then I'll make a hat to go with it. It's for me and I honestly have never knitted anything for me. I'm always knitting for others or for my girls. I'm hoping I'll finish today

I finished my scarf last night and I will post a pic later today. I really like it a lot - it's nothing fancy, but I mainly love it because I have never had a scarf before. Isn't that funny? I was telling my DH that last night. I live in GA and so there's not much need. But I love it - I love wearing it and I wore it all night (of course I took it off to go to bed ). I think I will wear it all day on Christmas Day! So I started the hat to go with it last night ........ Merry Christmas everyone!

FO.. a very last minute scarf
I knit this last night for a friend in NC. I wanted a scarf that didn't have a lot of bulk but would still keep the chill at bay when needed. And something more of the manly side, lol. What I had one hand was some Lions Woolease, leftover from another project. I thought I would have just enough yarn to squeak by and get the length I wanted......... I couldn't have been more wrong, lol.. whenI used up all the yarn I had, it only measured 23"s long. So, not wanting to scrap it(I was not sure I could get any more of this yarn) I wet it and blocked it to 37 1/2 "s. I think it looks ok, what do you think??
I knit it with 2 strands, one green and one brown. I had to improvise by using my ironing board, clothespins and pins as my blocking tools, lol.
