I made the 'Ribbed for Her Pleasure' scarf for my boyfriend. I think its pretty unisex in grey.

I started it in August and left it in my closet for months and months. Then, I realized how close Christmas was and I started knitting like a maniac. For instance, I would bring it to school and knit during study hall. One week and almost six feet later, it is done.

He will be recieving it in a few hours and I'll let you guys know what he thinks!  Grin


Two entire skeins. Whew.

Very nice!
 I'm sure he'll like it.

When I do ribbing like that - for miles and miles it seems - I can always look way, way back and find a mistake (or two).

Congrats on finishing it on time!

Oh, I made sure not to photograph a mistake lol.

Theres a few in there. My mom got all upset and told me to go back and fix them all, but it doesnt matter. Some people have pointed them out and other people say it looks like a pattern.

I tend to agree with the latter type of people.  Grin

Haha, I did the same thing... bringing my knitting into study hall because I was running out of time before Christmas.  The "omg, I didn't know you knit!  omg omg!" comments certainly got old.

Your scarf looks lovely, I'm sure he'll appreciate it greatly!  And don't listen to your mom;  mistakes are what gives it character!

He did love it. I'm sure I'll see him wearing it everyday! lol

The 'Omg! Teach me to knit!' comments also get very old, very fast...

I just started on this scarf, its the 2nd knitting project I have done. Do you guys have any tips for making the stitches tighter and more even? Mine is looking kind of funky!

The problem sounds like you may be purling a little lose.

Make sure when you purl that you pull tightly when you finish the stitch. If you dont, the ribbing will come out looking lose and big.

Also, keep track of stitches. I just kept up a steady beat in my head of K2 P2 when I was doing it. Im also finding it hard to break myself out of that mindset.  Tongue

Yours looks really good. Mine is just coming out a little loose it seems.. I'm knitting continental so i dont know if that has anything to do with it. This is the 2nd scarf I've made so far and it always ends up looking better towards the end, lol.
