Wee, ok.... my very first knitted scarf is officially done. I just did it in some old soft *dont gasp now* acrylic because it was handy and this is going to my brother who is allergic to wool.
I have been lurking on this particular knit along and have loved all the scarves so far. Mine is a bit,,,heh...wide but I did it with the idea that he could fold it in half to make it thicker and therefore a bit more effective against South Dakota winter winds since that is where he lives.

Short and wide, useful if a bit weird looking:


And now a closeup of the yarn, the gray is called charcoal sparkle, its fuzzy and interesting. I cant remember what the tan is, aside from it being older than I am:

heh, well, I guess I've joined...  I'm making a ribbed scarf right now, not from the SnB book, just b/c, but it's ribbed for HIS pleasure since it's for my boyfriend.   Wink  anyway, stripes of grey and green wool ease (I hate the look of stripes, but that's what he wanted) 48 stitches on US 8 needles.  I'm about 6.5 inches in, going to switch colors every 7-8 inches (haven't decided yet).  it's taking me a looooong time, but it's good.  and it gets me in practice for the "tempting" sweater from knitty that I want to make!

I started this a while ago with a different color of yarn, but ended up messing up big time and frogging the whole thing.  Here's my start-over!  I did this at my aunt's house.  All us girls sat around in her living room and knitted while having a chat, watching TV, and eating my homemade chocolate chip cookies.  Fun stuff! Wink



You can't really tell from the picture, but the yarn is white with sparklies in it. Kiss

So I've been pretty into this ribbed scarf thing, but I have a question: has anyone else run into the problem of an accordian sort scarf? The ribs seem to squish together so that it's impossible to see the different levels; instead, I can see the tops of each rib, and when the scarf is flipped over, the bottom. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a different way to do this so that the scarf will be slightly more flat? Thanks in advance, friends - and all of the scarves look great!

WAH!
I can't get it!

For some reason, I can't purl 2. It ends up being 2 knots instead of stitches. I'm bringing needles and yarn to my daughters dance class Tuesday, there's a knitter-mom there and she will hopefully be able to teach me.
....... going back to making ANOTHER go go garter until then.  Angry

btw- Everyone did a great job with their scarves on this thread!


Okay, what's a go-go garter?? I just picked up the "I taught myself knitting" kit a friend sent me and did my first 12 or so rows of knitting last night.  I haven't attempted the "purl" yet though.

Just started knitting about 4 days ago, but I think I'm going to try this anyways.  Stupid question, though: After you're done knitting the two stitches and go to purl, you're supposed to move the yarn to the front to purl, right?  But, when I do that, I end up with an extra loop on my needles.  I've tried taking the yarn under the needles and then putting it around the front but that doesn't seem to be working.

Any advise would be helpful -thanks!

It sounds like you're bringing your yarn around your needle... Instead, bring it up through the middle of the two points...so it's not wrapping around anything .. just moving from the back to the front.  Does that make sense?

I'm new to knitting, too, and I had the same problem when I first tried ribbing.  You just need to make sure that the yarn you're working with is coming from the front of the last loop you made.  If you pull the yarn between the needles, it will by lying across the middle, rather than coming directly from the last stitch you made, which will add a stitch.  To make sure I'm not adding any stitches when I switch to purling, I always check to make sure that my last "knot" has the yarn coming directly down from it, rather than it lying across the middle between my two needles.  I'm not sure if that explanation makes any sense, but eventually I think it will just click and you'll be ribbing right along.
