Anybody interested in joining me for an easy ribbed scarf?  Newbies - this is a great project to get started on!

Cast on a multiple of 4 stiches, k2, p2 - repeat to end.  I'm using 10.5's, 32 stiches, lambs pride wool - in a pretty blue.

This pattern is from the Stich N' Bitch book.

I'll knit along with you as soon as I finish my other armwarmer, which should only take another day. I need to strat knitting some Christmass gifts and this is a versatile one.

Yes - it is & it knits up so quickly!  Here's what I've got so far.  This one may be hard to give away.    Grin

I'm in!  I taught myself to knit last week and whipped up the first half of my VERY FIRST scarf--it's the "Ribbed For Her Pleasure" scarf, in a beautiful variegated wool blend yarn.  I'm starting a couple more to give as gifts for the holidays, and I'd love to join in!  However...how does a knitalong work?  Do we just keep posting in this thread with updates?

Honestly, I don't know exactly how it's supposed to work.   Tongue  This is my first one.  I'm almost done with the scarf - I'll have to post a picture.  It's turning out very nicely!

 ;)I just bought yarn for the scarf.  It's a pretty delicate weight yarn and now I'm realizing I'd better buy some littleish needles--maybe 5's.  I'm going to do it in pink and green stripes, since these are my little girl's favorite colors at the moment.  I found some lovely wool/rayon blend yarn that has a slight sheen.  the pink is what you'd picture (a normal pastel pink) and the green is a pale avocado color. It'll be great with her red hair.

hey...i'm a newbie to this ring (yey, finally! i've been reading it obsessively for like a week now) and a somewhat new knitter - i've completed one simple scarf and played with some patterns, but i'm definitely in for this one, i need to turn my tv-watching in to something productive! lol and this is the perfect solution
i just have one question....what exactly is the significance of the needles (10.5 is the size for this project?) and the type of yarn used? what will happen if i use different yarn?
thanks a bunch =) Grin

I used a worsted weight and size 10.5 - but I don't think it matters at all.  However you'll probably want to knit a few rows to make sure you like the width and the gauge.  Luckily scarves are the easiest adaptable pattern out there.  I ended up using 1.5 skeins - about 200 yards.

Enjoy watching some must see tv while knitting!  I'm going on a road trip this weekend and am working on convincing my husband to drive while I knit.   Grin
