My first finished pieces…

The raspberry scarf was my first and took three days. This one is in a basic garter stitch. No frills. The color block scarf was my second, and took about a week (parent teacher conference week–not as much time as I would have liked) This was the most difficult in the sense that it will take more practice weaving in all those loose pieces of yarn and having it come out nice and even. The green cable scarf took me two days! Cable knitting is much easier than it sounds, and looks great! These pictures are before I blocked the scarf. After I finished it, it tended to want to curl (not as drastic as a stockinette stitch, but enough to hide the ribbing). It will be a lot of fun to post new accomplishments and watch my skills progress. Please post your knits and let’s watch our skills sharpen together!
