Last week I posted a sort-of 1st project, a wrist warmer that came into being because I was attempting a scarf and got bored with the colors I was using. A few days ago my daughter decided she wanted a scarf, so I picked out something in bright pinks (her favorite) and got to work.
I've only been knitting for a week, but I was getting so bored doing nothing but garter and stockinette stitch. So I decided to just play around with it, and wound up doing k5 or 6 then p1 or 2, experimenting to see what would happen. In the end, I got a very...interesting pattern
I added some very hasty tassels at the last minute, and Cthulhu knows there are plenty of mistakes here (like when I was binding off and pulled something way too tight, making the one end all wonky). But my daughter absolutely loves it, and that makes me happy. I wish I would have worked with something better (it's acrylic), but since I was practicing I didn't want to mess up anything too nice.
Here it is, with an action shot (I wish the pattern would have shown up better):
I am so in love with knitting, it's absurd. C&C very welcome (I never know what exactly I'm doing wrong)!
