So after years of making Christmas presents I thought I would try my hand at learning knitting. My aunt tried to teach me a long time ago but it didn't really stick so I learned mainly from youtube videos and exploration. In total I made 6 scarves over the process of about a month. All in all I'm quite impressed with myself although I still need to work on my tension. The first two basic scarves are the only ones I didn't use patterns for and all the patterns I used are off of Ravelry.

First round was scarves for me and my brothers. The first two are just basic scarves and the black one is just a simple ribbed scarf. I couldn't get a good picture of the detail but it looks pretty similar to the one in the pattern. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/new-york-scarf---a-guys-woolie-warmer

Next was 2 neckwarmers for my Uncle and my Father. Both used the same pattern (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mochi-neck-cozy) but my fathers was done in his favorite football team's colors, BC Lions,  black and orange.

Last but not least for my loving boyfriend I made a Gryfindor scarf. Was definatly the most time consuming but the most worth it. I used this pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hogwarts-scarf which is apparently really popular amongst Harry Potter knitters.

As you can tell he quite enjoys it  Wink
