...Congrats on finishing your first knit scarf!  What stitch did you use?  I think each scarf takes different times depending on the size of the needle, the type of yarn, the stitch and whether or not you get tons of distractions and interruptions! Cheesy

I can knit a basic scarf in about two hours, but the one I am working on now...I have 15 hours into it and have two inches lengthwise with 4 more inches to go...so the scarf will take me about 45 hours or so...but it is because of the linen stitch...very time consuming!

Thanks!  I purled the whole thing, so if I studied correctly, I think that makes it Garter stitch.  I was just curious about time because I was dropping the working yarn from my left hand with every stitch, so I knew that was adding at least a few extra hours.  I just couldn't figure out how to be coordinated or comfortable enough to do it correctly.    I assume it will come with more practice.

yes, purling does take longer...but usually garter stitch is done with the knit stitch on every row...hmmmm...I never thought about it, but I guess if you purled on every row, you would get the same garter stitch!... Cheesy

Oh yes, with each project you will get much better and faster...it is great that you jumped in and did it!!!  You should be proud...but, uh, isn't that going to make you want a BIGGER stash? Cheesy

What charities do you make things for? I have tons of fabric and yarn. I'm using the yarn to make scarves for the homeless shelter. What can I do with the fabric? It's mostly cotton and a good amount of flannel. I consider myself an advanced beginner. I have everything from small pieces to old bed sheets. I don't quilt. I've been too afraid to give it a try plus I have the attention span of a gnat. I'd really like to find some where that wants softies/stuffies.

A bunch of the mods are making blanket thingies for the animal shelter...the need blankets for dogs and mats for cats...I am using a lot of old flannel pieces for those...also, if you check out member scrappysue, she does a lot of charities involving fabrics...a lot of them are for overseas, though...

You should check out the Toy Society! You make a toy and leave it in a random place for someone to find. I know other members here 'donate' to that regularly.

aaah those baby booties are so cute!

I came across these 2 pieces of fabric that I bought a while ago.  Each piece was about  6"x10.  Not very big but I love the blue floral.  So after much thinking upon what I could make from such small pieces I came up with my fancy craft Journal.  I decided to go all out and add ribbon and beads to it.

Its a journal and not a craft board? Good grief, I was sleepy last night.

Still very cute.  Wink
