First Knitting Project Finished!

Here is my first knitting project all finished! It is a long scarf-67 inches. I see that the fringe is looking a bit rough and needs to be trimmed, but altogether I am so pleased with it. It is a simple knit 2, purl 2 design that makes a ribbed effect. My technique and tension improved greatly from the beginning to the end. And I have enough yarn leftover to knit a matching hat.

Thanks to Liz at Renaissance Yarn for all her help and encouragement-click here to visit Renaissance Yarn. I have already signed up for Knitting 102-Hat.

Very pretty! I'm not sure whether to admire you (for mastering a new craft) or pity you (for picking up a new obsession) lol!

Congratulations on finishing your first scarf! Don't you just love Noro and how the yarn just stripes out? The combine great colors as well! I LOVE everything about your site, from the name of your blog to the picture of the kitty in the pillow to the lace edges. Very nice!
