I jumped on the knitting track again (after about 10 years) this Christmas to make my sister some fingerless gloves and a scarf.
I made two pairs of gloves as a intro back into knitting, watching a lot of videos from KnittingHelp.com
I came up with a pattern based on cording and dropped stiches to make it look a little looser and more crochet-like.
I really like the color of green of this yarn. Hopefully it goes well with a lot of her things!
I followed Posie's advice on water blocking to stretch the scarf out. For a ironing board and saftey pins, it worked about as well as it could have! :) I can really see where a dedicated board would work nicely.
Not sure I could get the best pictures of it, some of the cording is lost in this photo, but you can see in the blocking how the pattern looks :)
