I bought a learn-to-knit kit too... what a waste, then I bought Stitch n Bitch handbook... money well spent. What helped me the most after I read the book was to actually watch a knitter in action, I also watch the show Knitty Gritty on DIY Network. All of these things combined made a huge difference. Up to this point I always became frustrated, threw the needles across the room and gave up.
OK, I need to get started on my daughters scarf, I'll be back with it next week. Good luck and have fun girls!

I knitted up a bunch of scarves over the summer (when I relearned that garter stitch thing) through up til december, when I decided I wouldn't finish enough scarves for everyone so I decided to stick some Sublime Stitching cats on fleece scarves for gifties...I did three large and two small fleece scarves - no pics seeing as the vast majority of them are a three day drive from me (yea....I should probably be admitting to that in the embroidery thread...but I am here now)...so I have one last scarf to knit for one of my sister's since the yarn I have is much prettier than the yarn in the scarf I already knitted up for her..and then I am planning on attempting this:

I had a burst of energy & some videos last week (I knit while watching TV/videos), & I finished the knitting of my scarf. I have not finished felting it, but here are pictures of its current semi-felted state:

the inset is an extreme close-up. The yarn is actually navy blue with flecks of blues & purples. My friend Renee bought it for me on one of the Aran Islands.

All the goo we use, reviewed!

i learned about a week after alleycat did (since she showed me mostly Cheesy)  i thought it would be really hard for me to learn since i'm left handed (very very left handed) but it really wasnt.  and i LOVE the snb book, would definately recommend it!!!  if you haven't started yet, i would also recommend a thicker yarn and bigger needles (make sure they're the size suggested for the yarn also, it makes a difference)  because it goes a lot faster, and instant gratification is great when your first learning something, right? right.  the scarf i'm working on is a cream color in the wool ease thick & quick, very soft.  will post when it's done!  have fun everyone!

I've got a bag of different forest greens, navies and black yarns, for a very multi-yarned scarf for my mom for LATE Christmas!  I'm about a foot into it, it's gonna be grand!

ok, i finished mine now, or i knew it would never get done.

someone gave me the yarn, and i had nothing else to use it for so it became my scarf.  when i finished, it reminded me of those astroturf door mats, so i made a daisy pin to put on it.

i doubt i will ever use it, but at least its done!
