First FOs in 15+ years!
Thank you all for such wonderful tips and encouragement, as well as such great photos of your FOs and WIPs. After knitting once some 15-20 years ago, I started again earlier this year. I've been reading posts, though not posting much, and have learned a great deal.

Below is my first FO of my "revived" knitting career - a scarf that I've given the DH. The other is my first. sock. ever. It's not very well done, but it IS finished and I can wear it. Inside the house. If no one else is coming over. Off to try to make another to mostly match it.

Welcome and those look great!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

They look great, and you'll be surprised by how much easier the second sock is than the first.

Good job~~~~~~~~

I really like the pattern in the scarf. Can you post the stitch pattern or a link for the instructions?

Aren't socks fun to knit? Be careful or you'll get hooked.

Hey, looking good. Nice scarf and your sock looks great too. I'll bet the next one will look like a mate to it. Glad you are getting some FOs now.
