I originally learned to knit with the goal of fixing a crochet problem I was having (how to make crochet entrelac look more like knit entrelac).  I made a bunch of swatches where I did increases, decreases, cables, colour changes, you name it.

When it was time to try my first actual knit project I went with... a Doctor Who scarf, which many of you may recognize as being entirely knit stitches worked in rows. So, not the best use of my new skills (though, very, very cool).

Here is my second knit project:


Another scarf!  Once again, only knit stitches, though in the round this time.

I used Caron Simply Soft and four 5mm DPN's. It measures 4'8" long and 5" wide

I made this for my niece who is dressing up as Hermione Granger for Halloween this year.  Now I just have to figure out how to make a convincing Crookshanks...

And no... I haven't fixed the crochet problem yet. Alas.

i Love that you picked the throwback scarf design.  I made one of them years ago crocheting and it turned out horrid.  I think my favourite part is the fringe ends.  (I'm a fan of the newer patterned hp scarves myself)
