oh man what a breath of fresh air... no offense but I love this thread for 2 reasons:
-that is an amazing scarf for a first-timer! yay!
-the messages are so mellow, as opposed to ppl who are like 'omg why didnt you know that 1 row purl 1 row knit is stockinette and it curls up in a tube on its own and that scarf is so simple i couldve made it in 5 min.

I applaud you for learning to KNIT!!!

Good work on your first project!!!  That looks really great.  Such neat stitches.  I really like the yarn too.  what did you use? 

BTW if you want to keep stocking stitch (knit one side purl the other) from curling there are a few things you can do to prevent it or at least keep it to a minimum:
-do 2-3 rows garter stitch (knit both right and wrong sides) and then start on your stocking stitch. 
-when working stocking stitch knit the first and last stitch of the purl side row (also known as a selvedge stitch if you are going to be piecing together a sweater or something).  You can do more knit stitches on the purl side too, this will give you 2 stitches garter stitch, then your stocking stitch, then 2 stitches garter stitch-- which sometimes looks interesting.
-at the end, do 2-3 rows garter stitch (whatever you did at the beginning)

But, all that said, I really do like the way it curled into a tube, so ignore the above if you want to do that again!  happy accidents are the best types of projects I think!

Keep stitching and post more of your projects when you get them done!

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

thanks for the tip! i'll be sure to try that out soon. yea, i didn't mind too much on this one that it ended up curling because it was a thin enough scarf so it looked okay. thanks again for your help. i love knitting now! i've broaden my horizons on so many crafts...it's great fun! Cheesy

how did you do so good on your first scarf  Huh Huh Huh? Mine was terrible with the most basic stich and holes everywhere and I wasn't counting the stiches. It was terrible!

Wow, that was your FIRST scarf?  My first scarf ended up looking like world's biggest (and ugliest) potholder!  Yay for you - you should be really proud!
