Look at me! I can knit - sorta. I am nothing if not consistent. My mistakes show up consistently, see the hole? that isn't the only one. Also, if you saw the scarf from the bottom you would see the shift where I added or lost a stitch ... Anyway. Here is my attempt at knitting a scarf. The yarn is Manos del Uruguay silk blend. The color is "Lava." It is so soft and yummy.

Anyway, I am attempting to make a scarf from it.

Here is the beginning, again, ignore the mistakes (and my bad focus on the photos). I only learned last weekend and I am trying.

That's really cool! I never learned how to knit so it's really, REALLY cool! :D

Is it as relaxing as they say it is?

Excellent work! Love the colors... I can't knit because I get all hunched over and end up with knots in my shoulders from concentrating so hard. I tried, but I could never make myself relax while doing it at all so I gave it up as a bad job for me. *grin*

If you like doing it and find it relaxing, it won't be long before you don't have problems with holes anymore. LOL.

Oh I love it!

And the holes are so your neck doesn't get so sweaty! Its a good ventilation!
