ok.. so I asked a couple weeks or so ago about which technique to try knit or crochet and ended up settling on crochet. After trying to learn from youtube, several online sites and the book: Cozy crochet... I finally got the basics down enough to attempt my first project.

I bought two very bright skeins of yarn and ended up using both and when I finished realized I picked Dolphins colors.. lol. well here is my scarf it is actually longer than me at about 6 feet long but I like them long.

I realize some parts look like crap but i'm so thrilled I actually got it done that i'm gone pretend like it's amazing until I complete my next project that will then render this one a piece of poo lol.

ok enough rambling...

welcome to the crochet club! great job on ur first work of art, and i dont think u'll ever think its a piece of poo, there's definately something special about your first completed crochet project. i still have mine, after nearly twelve years (one giant granny square blanket that is the most incredibly lopsided and loose stitched thing i've ever seen).
i love it to pieces.
good luck with all your future crochet! cant wait to see what you create next!  Cheesy

one mans trash is another girls uncontrollable need to recycle and reuse it!!!

Thank you guys so much! It does curl a little bit but oh well. I'm just so happy that i've completed my first one which is usually the hardest to get out of the way. Ya'll usually have such great projects on here that it is intimidating.  Wink

I can't wait to learn more!

Oh and yes it's all single crochet.

Congratulations on finishing your first project! You did a great, great job on it. You have to watch one Dolphins game this season while wearing your scarf now, just because.  Tongue
