if you are using long needles, try debbie stoller's approach and put the "knitting onto" needle under your arm. that way you are only manipulating one needle and the tip of the other. i can't imagine knitting any other way!!!
I've never tried that way before, but I hold the "knitting onto" needle in between my legs, I started it when i started knitting..and it really makes it go alot faster...and doesnt take up so much room with 2 needles flopping around. So...just in case someone doesnt prefer the under the arm thing, maybe this'll help

www.knittinghelp.com is a VERY good site, with videos, and what not, to help you learn, it has all the basics and also more advanced techniques, when you feel like moving on to intarsia, or something of that level, it's very good. Soo...if you are like me and can't really grasp the concept of things from just seeing pictures, try out this site..

I have almost finished my scarf...I am knitting it with two strands of baby yarn one white and one pale pink. And I have knitted a border into the pattern. But you know knitting in the Australian summer is hardwork!!! I might just post a picture of my almost finished scarf and go to the beach instead of finishing it.

Littleone, thanks for the reference to the knittinghelp website, that is an AMAZING website. So helpful and very thorough. thank you!!!!

In-between biology and algebra exams and rolls of film needing to be shot, I haven't gotten very far.  That 'awesome' yarn I mentioned way back is still sitting in my closet.  I knitted up a bit and discovered that it's not as awesome as originally thought.  So, I ended up knitting a scarf for my cousin (owner of the world's largest scarf collection) b-day, using two strands of Bernats Ping Pong in hot pink and white held together throughout.  It has little puffs of fleece and stands of tinsel in it.  I ended up taking the fringe off.  The scarf is so long that it just looked funny.

Plus, now I'm making a scarf for my uncle, who after seeing that I made ones for all the girls in my family one for Christmas was sad that I didn't make him one.  Hey, all the guys that I asked said no...  So, I'm using Lion Brand's Homespun in Edwardian (dark gray).  It was supossed to be for his b-day too, but that was two weeks ago.

Photobucket obviously hates me right now, so I'll post the pics later. Grin

OMG... I finished... EARLY! I swear I thought this thing would never be finished. I kept putting it around my neck to see how long it was... and I felt like I needed 4 more inches for about a week. But its finished... and I'm very happy with it, especially since its my first time knitting. Haha... if you look closely you can tell which side I started on (its the ugly one).

Funny thing is... I kept going and going because I wanted to get the darned thing finished... but just so I could start another one! Ahhhhh!!! I've already got the yarn for it... haha... this is very addicting. Thanks for having this craftalong and pushing me to actually learn!
