I made one too, during Christmas vacation!!!

I used red heart acrylic and some mystery white yarn from a yard sale.  The scarf was the first project I made, and the red heart was leftover.  The hat is a little too short to be warm, but the scarf is too, so we're even, right?

I made matching mittens too: 

I used the "warmest mittens" pattern from Knitting Pretty.  I think they'd be warmer in wool.

this is turning into a huge pain in the rear... i thought the basic cable would be a great first project for cables
HAH! not working.... so i have a question

divide sts between 3 dpns, 32 sts on each
rnd 4: *K2 p2 c4f p2* to end of rnd

i did the first 2 cable ok, but the third cable was weird. the fourth stitch of the cable was on a separate needle, so when i attempted that cable, the stitches got all twisted and funky. soooo help?

thanks!!  Grin
i'll post pics when and if i get done

When I had that problem (because it happens a couple of times as you decrease) I just moved the 'odd' stitches across to the same needle as the rest of the cable so it was easier. It does mean one dpn is going to have fewer stitches on, but so long as you remember where you started the round it doesn't make much difference (and that's easy, because it's the beginning of a rib and you have your cast on loose end dangling down as a reminder..

I have started to knit the first stitch of the next dpn onto the current dpn I am working on (thus making it the last stitch on this dpn).  It's a little fiddly when I start off, and I forget sometimes, but it prevents the "ladders" that can sometimes happen when you use dpn's.  In my previous post, the mitten on the left shows an example of a ladder near the thumb.  It looks worse in real life.

thanks for your help!!

i was thinking of just moving the stitch onto that needle, but i was afraid the stitches might get messed up.
thanks again  Kiss
