My first real project! I finished it on July 4th waiting for the fireworks to start, which was good, because it was pretty nippy out. I used Wool-Ease Thick & Quick.

Super cute, and it looks super warm! I was just thinking of starting this today since garter stitch is the only way I can knit so far. Was it pretty easy?

Yeah, it's super easy, and it's almost instant gratification since that bulky yarn knits up so fast. Changing colors is a bit awkward the first couple times you do it, but it's good practice.

looks cool!! yeah, that's totally my second scarf i made, switching a number of colors over and over. my sides were a bit jinky, but it looks so cool when you get to put a bunch of complimentary colors together.  nice creative choice of colors! good job!

I do not think it's wise to eat this muck.

Very nice scarf, how did you weave the ends in?

Really sloppily, actually. I just sort of stitched them in along the sides, but that yarn is really hard to hide! You can't really see it in the picture, but I've got huge ends poking out all over the place. I think next time I would try weaving them through the middle of a couple strands of yarn - that might keep them in place better.

But in a weird way, I kind of like how shoddy it looks. Wearing it around town, I get questions and compliments all the time because it's so obviously handmade. Wink
