So I thought I would completely throw out the Ravenclaw notion of a scarf... until I realized that I should make a SS/COS scarf instead...

Smiley So I'm back in the game!

I am also starting a HP knitalong on my dorm floor... Hooray for finding more HP/Knitting fans (who are also education majors!)

Day 7 of the scarf-along...
I have 9 repeats done! Well actually I am 8 rows away from having that 9th one done...

But still - woowoooo!! Smiley

Here is a dark, dark picture of it - you can't see the whole thing because I am such a skilled photographer... <laughs>

Yay for making the scarf again, and yay for having a scarf posse at your dorm! Smiley That's awesome!

Here are some more progress pics from me. Since the pictures were taken i've done the third trapped bar. My boyfriend thought it would be fun to take a picture of me knitting in the park  Roll Eyes

You mean knitting in the round? Well, cast on, then, once you have cast on, go ahead and knit the first and last CO stitches together. So, you'd slide your CO stitches so that they made a U shape and were on both sides of the needle - then, pretend it's the middle of a row and just knit 'em together... place a marker or a piece of string tied in a loop at that spot, and you'll be on your way! Did that make sense?
You can also go to www.knittinghelp.co m and look up knitting circular - she has great videos...

Good Luck, and I can't wait to see progress pics! Smiley

I think if you knit the first and cast on stitch together you need to make sure you cast on an extra stitch to ensure the right amount of stitches b/c directions generally tell you to cast on for the number of stitches knit total.  It doesn't make much of a difference for a scarf but for a sweater or something more precise.  Does that make sense?

I didn't know you did that when knitting in the round.  It makes sense..it would make the first round neater, but I just hadn't been doing it and I had been sewing the little gap up after I finished.  I shouldn't make more scarves but I've seen the ones people have made here and I think maybe I will.
