It's knitted in garter stitch with Wool-Ease Chunky on size 11 needles. I taught myself to knit last weekend in an effort to relax after midterm exams.
What do you think? It's so soft and comfortable! Any suggestions for a second project? I don't really wear hats...

Congratulations! It looks great.

As for second project - really you can do anything. You could tried a simple ribbed scarf just to get the hang of purling.

ooooh that looks good!  i like a simple garter stitch scarf....especially when its a thicker yarn Smiley  awesome job!

and as for a second project...i agree with duckie.  ribs are nice and a great way to start doing a sort of pattern.  you can do either a knit1, purl1 repeat, or you can do knit2, purl2 to make a thicker rib.....or you can knit8, purl8!  its up to you Wink  just alternate between knitting and purling each row Smiley 

good luck and don't spend TOO much on yarn Wink  it can get quite addictive!   Tongue

Oh my GOODNESS!!  That looks almost identical to the green scarf I accidentally left in Utah during a layover.  That was my most favoritest scarf in the world.   Cry

Your scarf looks fantastic, by the way.  Your stitches are all nice and even, unlike my first scarf, which was something awful and holey.

i love the color...your stitches are so neat and even! well done. for a second project....this is so fun (one of my first non scarf projects) i call it the idiot's dishcloth =p o.0 pattern from my grandma.....

lily sugar 'n' cream is best for this but i'm sure any random acrylic yarn is fine...
CO 4 stitches
knit 2, yarn over
continue until you have any even number of stitches above 24
now you start decreasing which is ridiculously simple
decrease = knit one, knit two together, yarn over, knit one, slip one as if to knit, knit one, pass slip stitch over. sounds complicated but it's really not! the link down there should help if you don't know what i'm talking about on some of this stuff!
continue decreasing until four stitches are left. bind off. weeeeeeee i make these by the dozens and give them out as gifts.....! they are so easy and a good way to learn new stuff o.0
EDIT -
http://www.anniesattic.com/stitches/knitting/index.html this is useful for learning new stuff
