Braided Cable Scarf
OK, so this is my very first knitting project (other than the practice yarn I learned to knit/purl on.) I've been told I chose an ambitious first thing to do. LOL After about a gazillion re-starts, it's gotten to be about 4 feet long so far.

Very pretty. Quite ambitious for a first project! You did great. I try to be pretty ambitious too, I say jump right in and try things!

Wow, that's great! It looks fantastic. I admire you. I am a first timer too and I am knitting a simple scarf all in knit stitch for my dad. Keep up the good work!


PS I too have restarted mine a zillion times.

I think that it's absolutely drop dead gorgeous! I'm such a sucker for cables scarves, it's just so pretty! WTG for your first project! Now you can do anything

Ditto what KnittingNat said - I love, love, love cables! And that is really pretty. If this is your first "real" project, then I'd say you have a bright knitting future ahead of you! Nice job!!

Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement and praise. I'm extremely excited that it's turning out so well and can hardly wait to see what else I can do. LOL

That's just gorgeous! Is that your own pattern or is it from a book or online? I only ask because this is EXACTLY the kind of pattern I've been looking for for a couple of years, and I've never been able to find it.

You're doing an amazing job! Keep at it and you'll be making all kinds of fun stuff soon!
