so i'm a little nervous to post, but was so proud that i finished my first scarf! it was a gift to my sister. i used size 13 needles for really thin yarn and came up with this holey scarf. i'm not good at the verbage just yet...but i know i knit one row and purled one row. i taught myself how to knit in one day from the stitch and bitch book so i highly recommend it to those who are learning or would like to learn. it was a lot of fun.  Grin

You're doing great. I just love it when people compliment me on something I'm wearing  and I can proudly say, "I made it!" Of course, today I was wearing a poncho and my friend was so impressed but I had to fess up that I got it from Ross for $10!

Great job!  Your stockinette stitch is sooooo much neater than mine was when I started knitting.  You look like a pro!

thank you everyone so much! i can't wait to make another one!

it's actually just kinda curled up. i know there are techniques to keep it from doing that but for this one scarf, it doesn't look too bad.  Smiley thanks again everyone for the nice comments!

it just happens naturally if you're knitting one row and purling the next. one of the craftsters once told me that it's because when you knit it's looser than when you purl so it causes it to pull the front towards the back on the ends and makes it curl. it's something most people tend to avoid cuz it can be annoying when you've spent so much time making it "x" inches wide and it comes up half of that because it's all tube-like..hahah.  Grin

I am much better at crocheting, and it takes me forever to purl, plus I always forget if I am supposed to be knitting hte row I am on, or purling, I may just have to try this though, because I really like it's tube-iness.
