I found my first scarf slow, but then I got the hang of it and now I can make one of the star scarves in less than a week. New patterns are a challenge still, which makes them fun to try.
fetchboi40639> those colours sound great! I may have to steal that colour combo suggestion! Cheesy LOL

It looks good so far.  The only thing is the edging looks a little odd... Does anyone have issues getting the ends of rows to look neat?  I'm kinda still new to knitting, so if anyone has suggestions, I'd be very grateful to hear them.

To get my edges a little neater, after I knit the first stitch of the row, I'd pull the yarn really tight. This should straighten out the twists at the beginning of each row.
That might not help it ton, but anything's worth a try, yeah? Roll Eyes

Jumping in here! I've been attempting the houndstooth pattern posted by neekie off and on for about a month now while I'm on the phone at work (I work in a call center, much boredom). Yes, it is extremely tedious...and not only am I relatively new to knitting (I've finished all of one scarf and a pair of armwarmers that wound up scrapped) but this is my first double knitting project. So...be kind. So far I haven't screwed anything up too majorly.

In progress picture:



Only about 3 more miles to go, it seems Shocked Maybe I should just turn this into a neckwarmer? Hmmm...

That is so great, I am so in love with houndstooth, my dream couch is houndstooth!  You are doing a really wonderful job, I wish I could knit.  Undecided

feedthesquirrels> That looks great! I think it would be a fantastic scarf, but only you can decide that! Grin

As longs as the chart is clear and you are using two main colours, I think that you can use any image that you want! Cheesy YAY!!

I think I'd like to try this...
Double knitting (with no sort of pattern in the middle) COULD just be a sort of mitten like thing if you used a regular cast-off with it, right?
I think it'd be a neat bath mitt just to get me warmed up (while I get a job to afford the yarn for a 'real' dk project).
