I received the last of my yarn yesterday and today I've started my scarf.  Any tips anyone?  How do you keep everything from getting tangled up?

I just finished my second scarf last night (pics soon!).  What worked for me, though still kind of a pain, make three separate strands instead of pooling them all together and then trying to separate the stands.  Also have someone hold it while you knot it and braid it, extra tension and extra hands are VERY useful.  Oh, I also looped mine like you would extension cords that you are putting away (I hope that makes sense), so that i could just hold onto the loop as I braided instead of a GIANT bunch of yarn.  If someone has a better way of doing it, please share, mine way definitely was not super easy!

Those all sound like great ideas.  I got impatient and just went for it.  I had tangling issues cos I did pool all the yarn together and then had to separate it.  I live on my own so no spare hands.  One tip I have - keep the kitties away!

my daughter helped untangle as I braided. I did try starting in the middle and braiding out to each end on one. It has a ribbon tie in the middle. Another, I combined knotting and braiding. the knotted portion is in the center.

The night before I made my scarf I was washing dishes and just put my Pyrex dish in the dish drainer. Picked up a glass and the next thing I know I have broken glass everywhere and my hand is bleeding. The Pyrex dish shattered and threw a projectile into the glass I was holding.

The day I made the scarf DH accidentally slammed his hand in a plate of glass. He works construction.

DH & I both braided the scarf with injured hands, lol. We had to put the cats in the bedroom. All those fibers was too tempting and fun. I held the scarf and DH braided it.

I love my scarf and have become very protective of it. Those scarves are warm.
