I made lots of mistakes having no clue what I was doing and ended up with a crappy-knitted scarf that's about 3m. long and I love it.  Tongue

You did great.  It looks much better than my first scarf.  I was the queen of dropped stitches.

Wow, thanks for the compliments.
I'm definately going to try to knit some more things, maybe with patterns even? I thought knittinghelp.com would be very helpfull, but I found it afterwards.

I agree with them.  Knit, knit, knit.  I'd turn to www.knitty.com for patterns.  Check out the things other knitters have made.  Aspire, crochet, spin, design, enjoy.  Try everything related at one point or another.  Get into it.

It looks great, by the way.
