Hey booglass -

As my mom always says "third time's the charm".  If it doesn't go through this time - keep it.  She'll understand.   Grin

Hi
I'm new to this site and also pretty new to knitting! This site's great as I don't have an SnB group or anything here...

I'm on my second "ribbed for her pleasure" scarf, but this time I'm doing one with stripes for a friend's birthday (on Sunday, so the pressure's on!).

I wonder if someone could help me - every time I change colour, I get two tails hanging down, and the SnB book says just to weave them in not to knot them. Can this really be true? Im so scared the weavewill come out and the whole scarf will rip out!!! Help would be most welcome.

Shona, if the tails are long enough they should not come unwoven, I however, am also a chicken so I try to work things so the ends are on an edge or seam (depending on the project) so in a scarf when you change colors I would tie a square knot, making sure to not pull too tight then weave in the ends several stitches. To weave in ends, if you have the Stitch and Bitch Handbook, it tells you how, but basically all you do is pull the ends through various stitches to hide them. I use a crochet hook but a yarn needle works equally well. I am not an 'experienced' knitter, meaning I just started knitting a few months ago, but so far that is the trick that works for me. I dont like not tying the ends any more than you do, no confidence,  I guess. Smiley 

Good luck and welcome to the wonderful world of knitting.

Hey I'm new to this site, but have been lurking for a long long time... I recenly finished a "ribbed for her pleasure" scarf for my friend's birthday... It was quite easy to make, and I make a keyhole thingy so she could have a pull-through... happy about it.

yay for first projects!
