So it's taken me some time, but my first knitting project is finally complete! Here are some pictures.
The scarf is pretty long - I prefer long scarves to the ones that refuse to stay wrapped around your neck. Its final dimensions are: 65.5" x 8.5". That should definitely keep me warm this winter!
ok. feeling pretty dumb, now. been swatching a pattern that calls for p2tog tbl to be done and somehow it just isn't coming out right. this is the aspect of knitting that makes me feel stupid when things just don't seem to work and i can't see what it is i'm doing wrong. off now, trying to find how-to video clips on google.
Many people think that the internet is cold and impersonal. While it's true that it can be, this is not one of those places. It has turned out, in the last few days, to be an even more warmer and inviting place to be than I ever could have imagined.
I am overwhelmed with the love and support I have recieved from all of you. Enough so, that I might have to cover the keyboard in plastic to keep out the salt water. Believe it or not, I have actually 'felt' each and every one of the cyber-hugs I have recieved from y'all and your wonderful words are eternally etched in my heart.
