 Grin  Grin  Grin Ok I have been trying to teach myself how to knit for a while now and have been getting distracted by less important things such as college and what not.  But do to my dorm neighbors non stop alarm last Saturday I could not sleep so I started to knit and for once I managed to not mess it up and this was the result.  It's the first thing I have ever knitted.  It isn't exactly pretty but I am proud any how.  I used 9 in, 5.5mm needles and 2 skeins of Lion Brand Jiffy, mohair-look (definitely not feel) yarn.  I stitched it in garter stitch apparently  Huh which I found out from this website (it's amazing) http://www.knittinghelp.com .  This stitch was apparently the correct stitch for a scarf because it lays flat so points for me in beginners luck.  Thanks for looking, Comment Please!!

Ah..it's so pretty!
I guess all you needed was chaos and sleep deprevation to be able to focus.
I kind of understand it..I work better under pressure and stress too...

Your scarf is really pretty! I love the way the pink seems to make a design. I have worked with Jiffy before, and for me it was not the easiest. Kudos for sticking with it! You SHOULD be very proud!
