Karenie, your capelet is gorgeous! *sigh*   I've bought a couple of patterns from Stitchdiva and now you're tempting me to get another. . . .  She creates lovely stuff.

[As for a freebie classic capelet, folks might also want to check out Spun Magazine's New Vintage Capelet @ http://www.spunmag.com/article/050410vintagecapelet. It also has a beautiful timeless look.  Smiley ]

Eatcore, your thingy is cool!  This is the kind of top I search knitting books for.  Are you submitting it somewhere?

Beginner knitter here and I just made this scarf too!

Ellen, I love it and it was a lot of fun to make.  I used Giotto/Colinette ribbon yarn in Tapis (?) which is a beautiful reddish color. 

Guano:  Hey Ellen, I'm a naturallycurly member too.  I go by "BlkFaerie."

I love your whole funky look! 

Is that a pin/brooch on the scarf?  And it looks like you made a little purple loop on one scarf end to hold the other?

Thanks Aurelia!  I imagine splitting a stitch would probably weaken the yarn. . . .   I will try the front/back stitch thing.

I finished my garter stitch scarf.  I like it but I wish the color transition were done better.  I've learned purling and looks like increasing and decreasing are definitely next on the plate.

Amoba, yep, I try to check for those "independent" loops.  Huh Cheesy   Grin

I think every single one of my friends and I ended up with extra stitches on our needles every 5-10 rows on our first few scarves.  We just counted every couple of rows, and instead of going to the trouble of ripping out a couple of rows each time, we would just decrease by knitting two of the stitches together.  It looks fine, and anyways, my mottos is "mistakes are punk rock!"

Beginner knitter here and that happened to me too.  Like Aurelia & DeadDisco, I also combined two stitches.

I finished the knitting on my garter stitch scarf today (YAY!!) and will weave in all the ends tomorrow.  I made my mine just red and white for the Cat in the Hat effect. Cheesy Knitting the scarf was fun!

If you have 19 stitches instead of 20, can you "divide" a stitch in half to get the 20??
