i knitted just 4 rows. but i'm really pleased how easy it works. Grin

I'm working on this scarf as well, and have it posted in the Double Knitting Knitalong Grin
I'm about 2/3rds into it, but am getting crazy bored.. then picked up the Danica scarf.. and yeah, got distracted Roll Eyes
This was supposed to be a Christmas present, but he just might be getting it in the summer. Haha.

my edges look terrible, they are too loosely. tried several things but they wont get tighter  Sad .dont know what to do... thought about stitching around the edges when the scarf ist done. Smiley but thats much work... Grin so dont know. i hope my cousin will not care about that fact. the love factor counts Wink hehe.

Haha oh yes the love factor always applies! My edges aren't too bad, but on one side the design sort of wraps around the edge..
I'm doing it in silver and black, so the silver edge sort of shows on the black side. If that makes any sense Tongue But it's not too bad, I can live with it. And the guy I'm making it for will love it either way Grin

Hi! orange and red sounds really bright and happy  Smiley feel free to join the double-knitting knitalong, i have slightly more than a foot of scarf (not this one though), with a billion inches to go, the more company i have the better.. I just twisted my yarns at the beginning of each row, so the edges aren't too neat either.. I tried following the directions on knittinghelp.com about the edges of double knitting at first but i got confused and it messed up my stitch count (the error would totally be my fault not knittinghelp, which is indispensable. oh well)

have fun knitting! i'm so tempted to get "distracted" because scarves aren't my favourite things in the world to knit - so loooooooooong. ironically my projects on the needles right now are both repetitive and looooooooooooooong (clapotis, and a DK scarf). doubly ironic is that i'm being distracted by thoughts of danica which is.. a scarf. arghh
