2nd Scarf - in under a year!

jrrenola's picture

I'm pretty proud of myself at the moment - I finished a little 42" scarf for my 3 year old daughter. Yes, it was garter stitch. Yes, it was self-striping cheap-o yarn, but I finished it in about 2 weeks, dammit! (And G will be thrilled to have a scarf of her own after seeing Daddy make one for Mommy).

My next goal is a watch cap - still debating on whether to use circular needles then double-pointed or to go with the straight needles with a bit of Kitchener and then seaming it together... I have some really nice looking Lion Brand Wool-Ease that is a navy-blue/green mottled pattern that I've wanted to do something neat with...

Great job! My daughter is

Great job! My daughter is two (her birthday was yesterday) and obviously isn't particularly thankful for what I knit her, but it is fun to see her in the finished projects.

As for the hat -- I'm an odd duck, I suppose. But my suggest would be to use Double Pointed Needles all the way through. I just don't get starting on circular needles and switching -- I like DPNs and find it just as easy and effective to use them the whole way.

Grace and Peace,

Pics please! we're

Pics please! we're knitters, we need porn. Telling us about it and not showing us is like waving a plate of cookies under our noses, telling us how delicious they are, and not letting us have one. We're liable to become a lynch mob!

You spent two weeks to make

You spent two weeks to make something for your daughter - that's the important part. Hope she loves it (as I am sure she will)

I'm sure your daughter will

I'm sure your daughter will treasure her scarf. And I love garter stitch -- keep up the good work.
